Sit on comfortable stool, in order to minimize back issues. Open door, use #27 torx screw driver and remove the screw top 7 screws around the inner perimeter of the door liner. Use flat screw driver to lift inner panel(just enough to pull unit out), pull out handle and door assembly with switches, pay attention to wire connections, use pliers to remove wire connectors and install on new unit making sure of correct position of new unit. Position latch assembly, make sure the mounting holes are positioned correctly, lower inner liner, temporarily attach two screws holding new unit in place (do not tighten all the way). replace remaining screws...tighten all screws until inner door liner in place, paying attention,do not over tighten screw. Test run unit. Perfect!
