Did just the silver part snap? The cable didn't break, did it?
It's farily easy to remove the handle itself; you should be able to see a circular plastic covering in the black part behind the chrome handle, carefully pry it off with a flathead screwdriver and you will see the single screw that holds the handle in place. You will then need to detach the cable from the old handle and attach it to the new one; I don't have any details on that because I've never done it, but it shouldn't be too difficult. Then put the handle back in, screw it in, pop on the cover and you're all set.
Anyone who ever buys used cars online, anyone even THINKING of starting a "Is this deal too good to be true?" thread, anyone who wants to be more educated about protecting themselves must <a href='http://www.carbuyingtips.com/fraud.htm' target='_blank'>read this</a>.
