I removed the 6 screws that hold the top door panel in place. Then pulled the door panel up but didn't disconnect the electrical plugs. I popped the latch loose from the cover and removed the door switch from the latch mechanism. I then snapped the broken latch handle from the latch mechanism and snapped the new one in place. I replaced the door switch with a nut driver and snapped the latch and handle assembly back in place to the door panel. I slid the upper door panel in place on the door and replaced the 6 screws. It was a simple repair and the new parts fit perfectly. I must commend PartsSelect on their delivery service. I ordered the parts on Saturday and received them on Tuesday during the busy Christmas week. It made my job easy.
