The first step was to remove the bezel inside the door. It snapped off (but I did have to pry it off). This exposed two of the four door handle screws. I removed them and then started prying off the outside bezel until I could reach the other two screws just well enough to remove them. Installing the door was the reverse of the process. All told, it took less time to do this than to have installed a new microwave oven (or waited for somebody else to install it).
