Removed internal screws on door assy. Removed defective latch assy.

Removed connectors from switches and reinstalled on new switches. Reinstalled Latch complete assy reinstalled screws and tested.

Problem: be aware, Switch connectors have internal latch locks that prevent them from inadvertantly falling off switches. Finally after trying different tools used thin jewelers screwdriver to depress internal lock device to release internal latch. Had to cut off switch connectors contacts to do one at a time. I know that there is a special tool for this, but I did not have one on hand.
Alls well that ends well.
