The lift gate handle stopped working on my 2002 Sport and I removed the interior panel and found that the yellow plastic clip that connects the handle to the actuator rod broke. Of course, you can't replace the clip, the whole handle needs to go. The problem is that the handle is riveted to the lift gate. I can probably drill out the rivets and perhaps then use nuts and bolts to hold the new handle in place. Has anyone replaced this handle or have any other suggestions (other than having Ford do it)? Thanks for any help.
