First I used a flat screwdriver to ply loose the gasket inside the door that holds the glass in place - just the half nearest the handle. You don't need to fully remove the gasket (this would let the glass fall out), just enough to expose the lower screw holding the handle. I removed both screws (Phillips head) holding the old handle and removed it. I replaced it with the new handle and attached the screws on the inside. Hand tighten until there is no movement of the handle. The gasket can be pushed and will snap into place.
