I got them from ebay after some searching but you can get any decal you want on them if you ask and there easy to fit, had to remove rear wheels to be able to remove screws but other than that theres no drilling required at all and it comes with instructions.

Noticed this on the drivers side the front of the handles clips have snapped! Ive only just noticed this so dont know when this happened or why i got 2 options remove the door panel etc and fit new handle which is a pain just for 1 or i could attempt at glueing the broken clips and hope for the best whats peoples opinion?

Oh and fitted this too

Hot melt glue isn't exactly ideal I would have thought. The actual strength is poor and the application isn't exactly precision-oriented.

Have you tried either a glue for hard plastics, or epoxy? Chemical-drying glues such as epoxy will work a lot better than air-drying glues in most cases, but it's important to get one that will bond to the type of material you have.

I bust mine couple of months ago and its still holding strong, unless you want to spend a lot on one like screwfix and the like a bogo one from home and bargain or somewhere like that, think I paid 2.99 for the gun a a pack of glue sticks was 1.99
I've used mine so many times now as it sticks to most things, the good bit is even if you drip it down the door cause like me you wack a load in trying to get a good bond it will just peal back off the paintwork unlike chemical glue's.

I think this statement is key It highlights the lack of precision, and the lack of bond strength.

Hot glue is good for some things, but definitely not a permanent fix for something like this. Don't get me wrong, it will probably hold for a while, but you can't get away with just a small amount, you will need a good blob of it.
