Door handle replacement

I’ve gotten tired of gluing the interior door handles of my 2000 Toyota Corolla, but I’m having a hard time finding replacements online. has what I need, but claim they only work with manual locks. They look identical to the ones I’ve pulled from the car, but the site says otherwise (as did their customer rep, but he didn’t seem all that confident). Can anyone tell me where I can find interior handles to fit power locks? Is there a functional difference here? And has anyone had any experience changing out the exterior handles?

If you can’t find the proper door handles on line, the alternative is try locating them from a local auto recycler.

To change out the exterior door handles requires removal of the inner door panel.
