You do not need to remove the door from the microwave. I used a putty knife to gently pop off the interior plastic frame surrounding the door glass. By working the putty knife along the outer edge and gently rotating it outward the plastic frame easily unseated. With the plastic frame removed it was simple to remove the two phillips head screws that held on the broken handle and then reuse them to install the new handle. The plastic frame was easily reinstalled and snapped back into place with light pressure.
