Removed the 11 torx head screws from the inside door panel. Popped out the handle assembly and pulled very hard and wiggled back and forth on the two electrical connectors to remove them from the switch contacts. Reassembled in opposite order. By the way, the plastic holding the lower part of the handle assembly to the door was also chipped away, so after setting the handle assembly into the slot in the front of the door, I stuffed some styrofoam over the body of the handle assembly so that the inside door panel would hold it tight against the front door panel when screwed together. The new handle assembly has been working fine now for a couple of weeks.
