Thanks to great instructions from a previous person, this was super easy. It took 5 minutes to remove and replace the new motor. The big part of this job was cleaning out the cabinet where the microwave sits, since I had to take it out.

There is a 'door cover' pressed into the bottom of the microwave, that just has 6 small tabs that you need to cut. Then remove 1 screw, and the wire clip and the motor is changed. The door just reverses and re-installs with 1 screw. When the microwave was designed, this repair was in the engineers mind. So simple I couldn't beleive it.
