I removed the 11 star drive screws holding the inside of the door to the frame. The door handle and latch assembly comes loose with 2 of these screws. You must then remove the 2 wiring harnesses from the door switch. This just involves pulling straight down with a pliers. The new assembly has pins to match the 2 wiring harnesses and the door assembly sits right in the same spot as the old one. Carefully set it in with the door all the way open so it can't slip and reattach the inteior of the door using the 11 screws. It is an easy fix and you only need to get a #25 star drive bit for your screwdriver or battery drill.
