I simply followed instructions provided with the replacement door. A butter knife was used to gently pry open the panel enclosing the inside of the door. Removing the panel exposed the pins holding the door on its supports. Once the old door was lifted off, a similar operation with the new door allowed it to be set in place. The inside panel was gently snapped back into place and - bingo - job finished in about 5 minutes! (In all fairness, I had learned how to remove the inside door panel while diagnosing the problem with the old one. That probably saved me 10-15 minutes on the final repair.)
