mine was like that and all i did was push it in and then slide it forward and it locked in place. I dont know if this is what your talking about though... Im talking about the plastic fram around the inside door handle...

Sounds like the same prob I'd had... it happens every once in a while... nothing's perfect, snap it back in. If you can see the clasps, see if someone else can check it out for you... aka not a paid mechanic
