I could be wrong but I think you need to open the door and look at the side of the door adjacent to the handle.
You will find a round plastic sticker.
The sticker will break on removal.
Under that sticker is a torx screw.
I am lead to believe that this screw holds the end piece on.
I have not been able to prove this as I have the same issue with a Peugeot 407, where I think the dealer lost the screw on a repair and just stuffed the hole with rubber. The end piece is just wobbling around and I don't want to loose it.
If the above works for you can you please advise.

Try Ebay. The Peugoet 307/407/partner handle looks the same.
Make sure that the insert has a spacer on it. Before inserting the insert make sure the spacer is stuck to it with double sided tape or it falls off. I had one made by a neighbour as the garage lost the spacer.
Also - as a safety precaution, do the locking nut up so it's nearly touching the insert - push the insert home and then do the locking nut up. Without the spacer the insert just moves around as the locking nut does not hold it correctly.
Hope this helps.
The locking nut is under the plastic sticker on the edge of the door. Just slaken it - do not undo it totally. The Peugeot is the same.
