Is it possible to disassemble a door handle/door sensor?

I’ll save you all the boring details.

My driver side door handle sensor is not working. Passenger side one works great. I know this is a common issue and have trouble shooted it to no avail. It does not even work intermittently.

My car is “meteor silver” and I have sourced a complete white door for $30.

My question is, can the sensor be taken out of the door handle and put into my correct color handle? I don’t mind digging into it. Just curious if it is possible for those that have replaced theirs previously. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Not that it matters, but I found out my color is actually Lakeshore Silver. That does not change my question, but figured I would throw it out there for accuracy sake.

I'd like to know as well, mine stopped working a while ago and I'm not paying 500 for a new door handle.

I might have found one in the correct color at a junkyard. I called and confirmed the color code but the guy on the phone said his “technician” would just cut the wires out and not save the harness.

Unacceptable even for a junkyard and their pricing. I am seeing if they will go the extra mile.

If I happen to get it, I will update this thread when I pull my non-functioning one out.
