The handle had been glued on previously, and broke off when I grabbed it. The glue had traveled into the holes where the plastic extends into the door for the screws to grab, so getting the screws and broken phalanges out was not easy. Using needle nosed pliers and an awl to scrape out the old glue worked, but it took some time.
Once I was able to get the screws loose and pop out the broken bits, the new part fit perfectly and is working like new.
