Are the screws in place? If they are then I would guess that the bracket under the door panel where the handle screws to is loose. If the two screws are in take them out and pull the handle off and you should be able to see if the bracket is loose.

The screws are in there. I don't believe the bracket is loose, but i'll check.

I don't think the handles are available separately from the panel. I would suggest removing one of the door panels and checking to make sure that the two retainers for the screws are secure in the door. I didn't think there were any clips on the handle, just screw holes. If required, the retainers, part number 11570654, are available. Ref. item 15 in this link:

I'll take it off again tomorrow and post a picture of it

Sorry to bring up an old thread. I just bought an 07 Canyon that the passenger side door has this issue withe the door pull. The screws are there, but the handle moves around. I removed the screws and I could hear the metal bracket fall to the bottom of the door. So it sounds/looks like the metal bracket has broken off. Any suggestions on how to reattach that bracket so that I can get the screw holes to line up correctly and remount the door pull? Thanks!

Longsnow, what it turned out to be was that the little tabs on the plastic piece were broken. The metal bracket was firmly in place but it isn't enough to keep it from wiggling. I purchased new ones and the problem is fixed. You may be able to rig something up without purchasing new ones.

I'm searching the Service Bulletins, that I have access to, for one that addressed the issue you have. If I remember correctly the instructions said to pop-rivet the bracket back in place. If it was originally tack welded you should be able to see where it attaches.

Thanks for the replies. Yes, I heard the metal bracket fall to the bottom of the door once the screws were removed so I know the metal shelf has disconnected from the door panel. Thanks for the feedback. This is being added to the list of things I am working on at the moment! :)

I have a 2008 Isuzu i-290 that had a similar issue. The door pull was loose and it flexed quite a lot when closing the door. After reading a couple other posts about it, I figured the bracket that the pull attached to was loose.

I removed the door panel and sure enough, one of the spot welds that held the bracket in place had broken, and it was flexing on the other spot weld. I drilled 2 small pilot holes through the bracket and door frame, right next to the weld spots, and then used a #6x3/8 sheet metal screw to secure the bracket firmly to the door frame.

Reattached everything and the door pull is much more firm, but it still flexes. I think I need those 2 plastic clips that Paul is talking about that was referenced earlier, part #11570654. Is that a good diagnosis? Do I need to order 2 of them or just 1 since it is only the driver side?
