Firts removed the phillips head screw securing the door handle on the inside top of the microwave door. Then used putty knife to dislodge the plastic surrounding the window on the back of the microwave door...thus uncovering the 2nd screw that holds the bottom of the plastic door handle. Removed the 2nd screw. Removed the broken handle. Put the replacement handle in position and secured with the two phillips head screws. Pressed the plastic back in place around the door window. Voila! It's done. Took about 10 minutes
