Taking the door apart was easy once you figured out how it came apart. Youtube videos were not helpful as every brand of microwave is different; what works for one does not work for another. My Kitchenaide has little interior hooks on the inside of the door, 8 on top, 8 on bottom, 4 on the hinge side. You have to pry the door-skin up to get teh hook disengaged, then get a putty knife or similar to keep the hooks from re-engaging. Once you have about 6 or 7 undone, the door starts to come apart. Eventually the exterior of the door comes off; the interior of the door remains hinged. After that, you'll figure it out...
