yes it is not the handle itself that i need its that piece at the back next to the screw that is being undone.the piece with the two screw holes and the barrel type peice attached that has broken.

Hi again

Sorry I missed you yesterday -

Right - so in your initial question you said "interior handle"... Now you are saying its not the handle.... So - you mean the part thats showing in the picture above - with the two screw holes??

I just need to be sure then what you are referring too -

Did you fully explain this when you asked Fiat etc?

Rgds, MIKE...................................
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

yes, ask for handle and connector.

Expert:  Mike replied 3 years ago.
Hi again..

Thats ok then - I was trying by words and the pic to determine what will fit - per your original question..

Basically - you should be able to order the parts you need through any Fiat dealer- part dept.. but its not unheard of to get this situation where they are just not available.. and then of course as you have found, with models such as these, 2nd hand ones are not that common.. but again - with checking with you as I have above - and per your original question, the Bravo ones are the same - ( that pic is a Bravo one )

So there are more of those around, getting one off one of those shouldn't be a real issue for you -- better than the Marea.

Do let me know if you need anything else at all -

Kind Rgds - MIKE.

thanks mike. 1 last question, when I start my search again do I ask for a door handle "connector/mechanism" I dont know the correct name for the part. would be grateful if you coul advise. once again thanks for your help.

Expert:  Mike replied 3 years ago.
Hi there -Thank you for your reply..

To be honest with you - I dont know for sure / 100% what they call them - people call them all different things - Fiat dealers tend to list them as "fixing".. which is not a lot of help...

What I would suggest is to inc the picture if you can...that I gave you -- but describe it as the part that the handle secures too - as opposed to just the handle.. Any breaker or parts supplier worth their salt will know what you are describing ;)

Im very glad to have helped you - and you are welcome back anytime -

All the very best - MIKE.
