    The chrome insert on the rear right door of my new Insignia Tourer fell off.

    I thought it was a nice simple job for the garage to obtain a new chrome insert but no. They tell me they have ordered up a complete new handle which will have then to be painted and then I will have to book the car in for the handle to be fitted to the car.

    Surely a complete new handle is unnecessary?

    Apologies that I did not make myself clear that the car is brand new and the work is being done under warranty.



    I just don't like the idea of things being taken apart unnecessarily as my previous experience has been that they they frequently are not reassembled perfectly.



    Looking at the handle it is painted under where the chrome insert was which made me think that the chrome was simply clicked into place.
