Removed the front panels and then wedged a screwdriver to get the door latch open. Removed the 4 star screws across the top inside to remove the top console. Unlatched the grey ribbon cable, then removed the 3 screws holding the electronics panel in place. Replaced the plastic handle, then aligned the metal bar in place before reversing the direction to put the thing back together. The hardest part of the job was wedging the screwdriver up in the opening to get the door to open in the first place.
