Door card handle separated from door card ( top )

As title states, my little Z, has suffered this common fault on the drivers side door card, top section where mirror switches are located.

What is the official fix? mine currently crudely held in place with a cable tie.

Re: Z3 RUNNING RICH, FUEL SMELL FROM EXHAUST....

I have read up few things. And one member mentioned the older 1.9 twin cam which I think I have ( 97 P reg car ) has only 1 lambda sensor, upstream of cat, and only later cars which were more environmentally friendly etc had the two 02 sensors, this correct?
