Sounds like the rod has come off the handle, Even if it's not that, it's super easy to get to to have a good look.

If you take the door card off:
1. unscrew door pin
1 1/2. remove window winder, the ring closest to the door moves down (away from the winder that you hold), and it pulls off.
2 remove screw from card near door mirror (but on inside)
3 pry off the plastic handle cover using something that won't damage the plastic, sometimes they're easy to get off sometimes they're a sod. It comes straight off the door towards you, not upwards.
4 remove the screws from behind the cover
5 remove the plastic clip from the doorcard near the bottom left side of the window. The whole thing should now lift up about 1cm then straight off...

You can see the rod from there, if it's still in the right place, the plastic lever might be damaged, easiest way is to get in there and have a look.

If I'm wrong with any of that someone please correct me, I've not done it for a while...
