Looks like the part is fairly cheap but it will likely require full door disassembly for replacement. Technically the handle need to be painted, but you could just swap the electronic guts and use your original handle.

couple hours for a pro, day job for a rookie.

If you put everything back exactly the way it came out you shouldn't have any rattles/ I'd check to see whether the interior door panel anchors are usually replaced once the panel is taken off. A body shop would be able to tell you. If the anchors are only designed to be compressed once during install and they don't hold tight after an R & R, you could get some unwanted noise.

Not really a problem on the 991. They switched to a slide-on mount over the snap-in from the 997. It's actually a really easy door to disassemble. I've never taken the handle out, but getting to the handle is going to be a breeze. PM me if you need some guidance ľ I've probably R&R'd those doors 40x by now.

When I decided to live with the faulty door lock button, I find out it is alive again
After car battery replacement , am not sure if that do A full reset to the system
Or battery current cause it to malfunction. -(Auto Start/Stop function alive again)
Case close.
It should be a service bulletin regarding this Issue
