I removed screws from the cover, then I removed the screws holding on the front panel. I then unplugged the connectors, and removed the front panel and broken door latch. Then all I needed to do was slide the new door latch in the spot where the broken one was and put it back together. The only thing to note is which way the yellow and white and the blue and white connectors are on the front plate (location and wire direction). All is working well, and I can open the door again. Needless to say I feel better about repairing the microwave rather then throwing it out getting another one and creating more electronic garbage in a landfill .
