First I remove d the top screw which can be seen when the door is open. Next I gently pried the plastic rim away from the inside of the door which uncovered the bottom screw.
Placed the new handle in position and reversed the removal process, carefully tightening the screw, being careful to not overtighten. Snapped the plastic rim back into place and the job was done.
The whole repair took less than 5 minutes! I saved big bucks by doing it myself and it is not difficult as long as you can operate a screwdriver!
