Removed the microwave unit from the kitchen built in space. 4 screws hold the perimeter cover on the four corners. Unit comes out easily after unpluging from wall.
Laid the unit on the counter and removed torx and phillips screws to remove the cover that wraps around the top and sides.
Latch bracket behind the door button had one pivot post broken. Removed the old bracket. Repositioned the new bracket by pressing it in at the plastic 'ears' on the microwave. The plastic 'ears' on the microwave unit give just slightly as the new bracket pivot posts wedge into place. Replaced the cover and put the microwave unit in the built in space.
