The handle could only be removed from inside the door of the microwave. The manufacturer placed a cover over the area which had to be removed. It looked like they never had intended for this to be removed as little black plastic pieces broke off when the cover was snapped off with the screwdriver. Next, there was more window-frame parts underneath making it impossible to reach the screws to remove the old broken handle and screw on the new one. That had to be pried away as well. Again, it looks like the manufacturer NEVER intended for these frames to come off. The job eventually got done with some minor cracks and small broken pieces to these frames but all is put back together with cussing and fuming from my husband.
