I found the replacement handle online. Any good tips or a video on how to remove the panel and install the new handle? My Google search yielded nothing.

The inside handle? That shouldn't be too hard to replace. I had to replace the outside handle on my 07 and that was, uh, "interesting." Let me take a look at my van later this morning and see what I think. I seem to remember that one of those horseshoe-shaped spring clips holds the handle on a splined shaft. You have to push the trim plate behind the handle inward (toward the outside of the vehicle) to see the clip and then use a slender hook to pull it off the splined shaft. At which point it was probably go flying, never to be seen again. I hope the replacement handle came with a clip already installed!

I did find a video on the Sonata which looks just like my door. I popped off the plastic tabs and I'm waiting to see what handle shows up Sunday night ...
