    has the clip broken off ? you can get the glues that come in a double suringe, they are normally good, but to be upfront, new handle covers are not that expensive from main dealers.

    My door handle was loose and I searched on here and found a fix by sliding a credit card in behind the handle towards the back of the car which pushed a little metal clip back in place.

    Mine fell off the day I bought the car. So I bought a new one from the sealers for £15 ancans to paint it which consisted of colour and laqure for £15 so £30 in total which isn't too bad as long as your handy with DIY spraying as Audi wanted £40 just to spray the thing! I fitted this on with a little superglue on the back to be sure it won't fall off again.
