-Remove all torx screws on door (2 min).
-unplug switch's (10 min) I used a small curved awl for this, there is a small nub that goes into the connector that needs popped off to release. I got the first switch in a few seconds, the second took several minutes.
-plugged in new switches and replaced torx screws (2 min.)
-another job well done.
The pictures on the web site were not accurate. I thought i needed the Latch assembly and the latch assymbly (Bisque)M. The Latch assembly Bisque had everything that the Latch assembly had plus the handle (and it cost like $8 less. So I had to return the Latch Assembly. Hopefully I made that clear I saw similar info when I was making my purchase but it was not clear so I ended up ordering more than what I needed.
