Open the door and using a putty knife I managed to pop out the plastic piece immediately inside the frame piece (Choke Cover #11 in the part diagram). You must be careful if the outer frame is broken because it supports the glass window. Once the choke cover is removed, then remove the two screws holding the door frame to the ASSY DOOR-E (#9). Using the putty knife I removed the door frame (#4 on the diagram) from the ASSY DOOR-E (#9). Separate glass window from frame and put aside. Using the screwdriver remove the two screws holding the handle to the frame. Finally remove the spring from the latch (#6), then remove latch. This is a golden opportunity to thoroughly clean everything, especially the glass window and the film door (#10). Reverse the order to reassemble the door. Other than reattaching the spring and tightening the screws, the door frame and the choke cover just snap back into place.
