When do I need to replace my interior door handle? 

You should take your car in for servicing if the inner door handle feels loose or is about to break, is visibly damaged, or doesn’t work to open the door.
Do not try to force the door open from the inside in this situation. Until you get repairs, you’ll need to exit the vehicle from another door or open the window and use the outer door handle.
