driver side door handle assembly break on 1994 Buick Century
1990 Century. Drivers side door handle broke when purchased. Now window crank broke so if I jam window up can't get out on drivers side. Using this method until winter is over and can repair. Attempted to get out of car recently and the passenger inside handle broke. Put the window back down on driver side so I can exit vehicle. Not much fun during this Midwest winter season.
