Easiest repair ever done. With the door open, remove all of the door liner screws and set aside. Lift the inner door liner away from the door frame to access the door latch. The door latch is held in place by two of the door liner screws, so the switch will already be loose. Note the orientation of the old latch assembly to insure the new latch is positioned correctly. Lift out the door latch slightly and carefully remove each wire and exchange the wires in position on the new latch. After the wires are firmly affixed on the new latch assembly, discard the old latch assembly. Set the newly wired latch assembly in the door over the corresponding hole positions for the top of the door liner. Align the door liner and insert the screws. Tighten each screw making sure that all screws are firmly secured, but do no over tighten them as it is easily possible to strip the threads.
