Try your local scrapyard or type 'parts gateway' into your browser. You can input your details and the part required on a number of gateways which will refer your request out to x amount of breakers who will email you with quotes on the part you require.

hi buying the part may not be the hardest part - I am trying to get the broken one off the car. It is not giving up easily.

I now respect the old cars I had where you just 'popped' the panels off

If its like the Phase 2 (96 onwards) then you've got a plastic panel inside the door over it. This needs to be pulled backwards towards the seatbelt. PITA to do.. the pesky things tend to break the clips inside. Following this advice is at your own risk though as I've no idea if the plastic cover is the same but thats how they're fitted on the phase 2.

Once that cover is off there are a few bolts inside. Got a feeling iirc that they may be starbolts.. not sure.
