We removed the screws, they were broken so we needed pliers to hold one end of the screw while we twisted the other end.
After that we simply screwed the new handle in.
I ordered exactly what I needed, the new screws were separate. But I looked at the pictures of the parts and made sure I had the correct parts to finish the job. I did. The parts were there in 2 days and we had the microwave fixed before Thanksgiving.
