Left side door handle melted

I am in dire need of replacing the side door handle. Found a replacement on amazon but it seems like a pain to install. Have you had this issue? and how much did you get someone to install it for you?

I would imagine an hour for labor. I advise contacting your local automotive upholstery shop.

Not hard, just time consuming. I'd say about 30-45 min. Plenty of videos on how to remove an f10 door panel on YouTube. Just some screws on the back of the panel and the handle comes right off

I have the same issue myself. I've considered buying the part to fix it but I've got other things on the list that need more attention. Lol
