Default glue the broken door handle?

The plastic door handle on my camry is broken yesterday. What glue can
I get to tie them together. I've not had success with plastic using
instant glue I bought from stores, and it appears that it needs to
withhold a lot of power in order to turn the knob for opening the door.
What types of glue should I get to fix my broken door handle.

Thanks a lot for your suggestions,

cpliu

You could try a high-strength epoxy, but I doubt it'll hold the handle together
very long -- that's a high-stress part. Just replace the handle.

Thanks for the suggestion. I will give it a try and report back in the
future. If it does not work, i will replace. I just don't want to go
through the process replacing it myself.
