I removed the screws around the top part of the door (from the inside side); carefully lowered the front panel down; unscrewed the old part; swapped the wires; screwed in the new part; and re-assembled the door. That was literally it -- 10 minutes and it was in and functioning better than it ever had with the broken latch. And the design looks so much more solid on this one.
The gasket didn't need to be replaced but I figured I'd do it anyway. It's a little harder than it seems like it would be, and in fact I spent more time on this than the latch itself, but it eventually went in and works just fine as well.
I hesitated for a long time because of the price, wondering if it was the right part. It looks very different in the actual latch mechanism, but it works perfectly. I wish I'd done this ages ago ^_^;;
