I first unplugged the unit, then removed the screws from the inside door panel. Tilted that forward enough to removed screws holding faceplate and handle latch assembly. Unplugged the wires to the latch assembly (takes a lot of tugging to get them unplugged). Unplugged the ribbon cable and then reinstalled all the new parts. The ribbon cable just pushes in to connect. Replaced all the screws, you're good to go. Very straight forward and easy!
