2006 Ford Focus Door Handle Issue

So last night just before work I went to open my door (passenger) and the door handle just flopped back and forth. I tore into the door today and discovered that a small metal bracket had broken (see pic below). My question is what do I need to buy to repair this? I can find the interior and exterior door handles but can't find anything for the internal mechanism.

First off, welcome to Focus Fanatics!

Second, it looks like your picture didn't show up... try again? I just recently installed a door handle, so if I can see what you're talking about, I can probably tell you what needs replacing.

That's weird. The picture shows up on my computer. Eh, I'll try again. The piece that's broken is the little metal bracket that the door handle (exterior). There is an arm that comes off of it that the handle pulls on that seems to have snapped off.

I tried to get the picture link to work. You need to use a photo hosting website like Photobucket in order to post pictures on here. Here is a how-to on that >>Click here<<

Hit a junkyard and grab the whole assembly if you can find it.

I recently had a problem with the latch keeping the door closed, and Ford wanted $250 (!) to replace the latch. I know that isn't the issue, but cost-wise, you'll probably pay more than necessary.

I walked out of the junkyard two days later with the latch mechanism, door handle, and linkage for $8.

Thanks, guess third times the charm? And I have called around to a couple of yards, so far I've been met with two who won't sell me anything because they won't strip undamaged doors, and one who has something like 6, year 2000 models. If I can't figure out a fix by this weekend I'll just end up heading there.
