Just so I understand, the inside pull lever is stuck? The part that broke is the square cover that fits around the handle? If the problem is inside the car, you dont need to remove the door for that.

The doorhandel is returning by a smal spring.
The spring is held by the plastic cover inside the door.
The plastic cover is broken so the spring in not held anymore
Question is can the doorhandel mechanisme be removed frome the inside or the outside of the frame.

the entire Inner door handle mechanism is held on with 2 screws, remove those, disconnect connecting rod, replace with a new unit and refit.
Reattaching the connecting rod to the handle needs some twisting, but it's relatively simple to do.
