After figuring out that the problem was a broken latch, the repair was quite straightforward. You first have to remove all of the torx screws that hold the inside face of the door on. Then I labeled all the connections on the old latch assembly before disconnecting the two wires and sliding the latch assembly out. Pay attention to the orientation as it comes out and replace the new one in the same way. Hold the new latch in place as you push the inside of the door over top and then put in the screws. The new handle worked great. I think the reason the old one broke was we thought you had to hold down the handle to close the door and that put strain on it. Just push the door closed without touching the handle and I bet that it will last longer.
