Door does not have to be taken apart. Soft touch cover panel is fastened to door with an adhesive.Just lift old soft panel cover off starting at one corner using a knife...then peel the entire cover off. I used my finger with no solvent to roll the old adhesive into small balls and remove it. After 95-98% of the old adhesive had been removed I wiped the remainder off using a little enamel reducer. Then, starting with the top of the new soft touch cover panel align it with the recess into which it fits and stick it down avoiding air bubbles. Fairly easy installation.
