Remove the door by lifting up the hinge side so that the two hinge pins disengage from the steel hinge brackets.This can be a bit fiddly so just keep wiggling the door until one of them pops off.
Remove the plastic cover trim piece that surrrounds the window, exposing the phillips head screws that secure the door to the handle.
Remove the screws to un-install the old handle, they are deep set so if they fall out of the door you will need needle nose pliers to pout them back into the door.
Set teh new handle in place and tighten the screws down snuggly.
Retrace your steps... snap the plastic trim back in place and reset teh door on it's hinges (once again this can be a bit fiddly so take your time.
