Removed torx head screws around inside of door. This allows you to open the top of the door enough to access and remove the latch. The latch itself is not fastened to anything, just held in by pressure of the door panels. The wires on my latch were extremely difficult to remove and if you're not careful you will get a shock, so don't touch them both at the same time. Put in new latch, re-install screws. Worked perfectly.
