I first pulled the bottom left and left side inner 3/8th inch rounded liner out. Use a thin flat head screw driver to gently pry the inner trim piece out of place. This exposed the bottom screw. I pulled out the old 1/2 inch silver coarse thread screw. The top screw is obvious. Removed that. I had to replace the face plate which slid off. Replaced the new face plate then put in the new handle top male end then the bottom male end in the holes. I screwed in the top 1.5 inch browm fine thread screw. Don't over tighten, just go until snug. If you over tighten you may crack the plastic walls of the screw hole built into the handle. I then put the small screw in and tightened it. Then snap the trim piece back in place. Viola.......You are done
