Take the three cross point screws loose that attach the panel to the door. (adjacent to handle) At the top of the door place a putty knife between the panel and door then gently pry up....simultaneously place another putty knife about four inches going towards the center of the door and also pry up. This will unlatch (loosen up) enough of the panel to allow you to grasp the panel in the area of the first putty knife and pull up on the panel with your left hand while simultaneously applying slight upward pressure with the putty knife ...the panel can then be pulled off completely. (Once the top is loosened) Remove the two screws that hold the handle in place. Install the handle on the new panel then press the new panel onto the door frame by placing it onto the frame then apply pressure on all four sides until you hear a slight "snap"
