Removed inner door cover. Latch Assy is held in place by 2 of the screws that hold the inner cover so at this point, the latch assy just slides out. The only minor problem I had was the microswitches on either side of the old latch would not let go of the connectors so using advice from a previous parts select customer, I removed the entire microswitches from the old latch (2 plastic prongs hold it on) and removed the new microswitches from the new latch and re-used the old microswitch assemblies. Works beautifully for $20 and 1/2 hour of labor versus the $240 I was quoted by a repairman!
