Default replacement interior door handles + DIY?

Looking for a front passengers interior door handle.

The metal is flaking off our 2015.

Anyone have a DIY to swap it out?

I watched a YouTube video for it, there are multiple videos out there. I replaced the drivers front door handle a few months ago. I would have extra fasteners on hand, my door had been apart for replacement of the door latch previously and i broke several fasteners. It was one of the most frustrating things i have done to a car.

I bouhht the oem part on ebay, it was about $11-12

Your response prompted a simple question. Is there a complete fastner kit for VWs that one can purchase? I find the dealing with fastners and each little quirk involving their removal to be very frustrating.

See this link for part numbers for the 2014 version:

http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=460244

I *assume* the interior door handles are the same from 2014 to 2015. My 2014 had the peeling issue (minor on driver's side, worse on passenger side but I almost never had passengers along) which I lived with until buyback. The 2015 I have now the interior door handles are just fine so far.

On my 2002 Jetta I did change the interior door handles out. Need to remove entire door panel, unclip the cable that goes to interior door handle and remove handle. There is a torsion spring on the handle that needs to be wound/held back to install it. I imagine the 2015 Passat works the same way.

I have to do the same job at some point. Got mine from the dealer - took them 2 days to get it in. I can track down the part number if you'd like - Mine are chrome and the car is a 2015. LMK
