Removed about ten screws which secured the inner liner in door. Two of those screws also were designed for double duty as they also held the handle assembly in place. The handle has two electrical connectors to remove. Reconnect the assembly and reassemble inner liner screws. The fix was easy. New handle assembly has a steel pivot pin instead of plastic so replacement part/assembly addresses the failure mode.
