There were only two screws holding the door handle in place. The first is obvious but the second requires that you snap off the plastic window cover on the door. I only took it partially off using a butter knife to lift it. It snaps out easily.
Take out both screws which removes all parts of the old handle. Then just put in the new handle and use old screws to secure it in place. Except for removing the plastic cover, this was absolutely trivial.
$60 seems expensive for a plastic door handle, but it is cheaper than a new unit.
