The handle comes with the switch assembly. I took out the screws holding the back side of the door (white side , inside the of door). The switch assembly comes loose as two of the screws in the door panel hold the switch panel in place. There are two plastic hoders at the bottom of the switch attached to the inside of thr front panel. On mine these were broken off, but not really needed. You might have to get the old switch assembly loose from yours. I then pulled the switch wiring from the old switch. Note what goes to which side and in what direction they plug in and then hook up the new switch assembly. You may need to get the new switch bottom lugs back into the two brackets (mine were broken off and I ignored them) and then I located the two top holes in the switch assembly with the two holes in the top of the door and placed the back door panel back in place and put all the screws back in the door panel. That was it.
