Removed all the screws holding the inside door panel. Tried to disconnect the four spade lugs going to the two micro switches but the spades would not release. Never had spades that I couldn't release before so that was a bit of frustration. Ended up not wanting to screw with it anymore so just removed the two micro switches from the new door handle assembly and mounted the old ones in their place and reassembling the door. That was the only hang-up, otherwise, the job would of been less than an hour from start to finish.
