Hi all, does anyone have any insight into the mechanism on the Z3's interior door handle? Mine just suddenly became completely disconnected from whatever mechanism attaches it to the latch (it was tight and had no issues before yesterday). It is now completely floppy and feels like it's not connected to anything (and doesn't open the door - have to open the window and reach out to open it now).

Is it likely to be a cable that's simply detached itself from the handle, or is there some more permanent mechanism which might've snapped? I would prefer to know whether I have to buy a whole new handle or not before I go tearing apart the door lining.
Many thanks

There is a tiny slot which the spring holds onto . My guess is that’s sheared off

Easy to replace, not sure you can fix it
