I ran into the same problem everyone does when doing this job. I found and removed the top screw from the back of the door but could not see the bottom screw so was unsure how to remove old broken plastic piece from lower handle attachment point and reinstall new. I went back to the website and found the comments from others re how to do this and from there it was a 2 minute job. The only thing I would add is a caution: When removing the wide black plastic flange from inside the door (to access the bottom screw) pry it out carefully all around. If you pry open only at the handle end and start pulling away there is a risk of snapping the flange
