Take all the screws out of the inside door panel and save in a cup. Two (2) of the screws on center and directly behind latch have the dual function of restraining the latch in place. The switch comes right out. The 2 micro switches (one on each side of the sssembly) were fine and they last forever. Besides, they are permanently wired because of detents on their spaded terminals. Instead of replacing the 2 existing micro switches, I unlocked them from thier mounts on the sides of the old switch and installed them on the new switch. The process took less than ten minutes.
