Unhappy Outside Door Handle Not Working. .

I have a 1997 Trans Am, and just a while ago I tried opening my door and my door handle got stuck in the up position. Not thinking I just gave it a little bump to get it back down and I hear something break on the inside. I have a feeling a little bracket broke on the inside. I don't have time to look at it tonight, but I'll get to it tomorrow morning. The outside door handle no longer works but the inside does. Any ideas?

Well, i have been called "Captain Obvious" .. :-) . But seriously, it's probably just the retainer/lock clip, which I believe to be plastic.

Lol, actually Ercmann'a advice was just about all you need to know. Just go in through the other door obviously. Then take the broken side door apart and replace the little piece. Probably just that retainer clip like stated.
