Removed the torx screws and lifted the inside panel up and turned to lay on door. Removed two modular plugs from micro-switches. (They slide off but take a bit of muscle.) from original handle assembly. Connected modular plugs to new assembly and placed on door. Repositioned inside panel over door and re-installed torx screws. The hardest part of this repair would be having the proper tool (torx T-20) to remove the inside panel

*The 2 little plastic holders on the door panel itself seem to break easily. Mine were broke before I even removed the handle. These are used to hold the handle in place prior to assembly. The center 2 top screws are what actually hold the assembly in place.
