darn easy - the older german part had lots of plastic that broke off - the new mexican part has metal tabs.
11 screws to take the door off -two pull off electrical connections - replace connections and screw the door back on (don't over torque the screws.
As with the disospal balde I replaced with this dishwasher - the replacement parts are stronger/better than orignal.
GET THE ASSEMBLY - has all the parts - the latch handle itself is only parts.
