OK! I'm 81 years old but thought I would give it a try. First BE SURE to unplug from the wall and throw the breaker or fuse. (I only pulled the breker and got a slight shock when trying to remove the broken piece.)Remove all the screws ang pull the metal panel from the door slightly. The door latch unit is fastened to the door by a snap bar gently pull away and you can remove old door handle. Snap the new one in place. For me this was the most difficult step. Snap the latch unit back in place; replace screws[ and your done. In just twenty minutes. NOT BAD FOR AN OLD PREACHER MAN. 7/30/11
