after removing the fascia below the control panel (optional wood inlay in this case), remove the 4 phillips screws holding the control panel. it can be eased away from the door assembly, and fully separated after the two electrical connectors are detached from the circui board in the door (disconnect power to the unit before attempting this). The plastic control screen must be gently pried off from the old panel and repositioned on the new one. You may need to add some adhesive. The latch mechanism also needs to be transferred, and this requires careful prying. Replace the electrical connections, and replace the control panel. Be certain the large flanges at the bottom of the panel are behind the metal panel on the door. There are some small flanges that stay on the outside. On this installation the small extensions on the flanges were snipped off to accommodate the custom wood panel
