turning two old screws out holding broken piece with needle nose plyers while turnning the philips screw is straight forward BUT getting at the screws is somewhat difficult. The black frame on the inside of the door over the screws must be pried out of the door to allow access to the screw heads. This black frame is held in place by compression and there is no place to begin prying it out other than with a very thin object like a kitchen spatula or very thin putty knife, only pry out 20% over the screws.It would be nice if extra screws were included with the handle as YOU WILL DROP at least one.
