I read the reviews and procedures at PartSelect and was able to complete the task in 10 minutes. I unscrewed the hex screws, pulled off the door backing, pulled out the old handle assembly, disconnected the wires to the old handle assembly switches, put the new assembly in and connected the wires. Then I screwed the hex screws back on securing the backing to the door and it was good to go.

The discontinued the latch alone, so you must buy the entire micro-switch and latch assy. You take off the door screws with the Torx driver, prop the inner panel temporarily out of your way, fight the terminal connectors OFF the old micro-switches w/needlenose pliers, slid the new connections ON, lay the assy in it's "slot" (which IS well engineered) carefully replace the inner door panel, start a few screws, make sure it's aligned at EACH screw and tighten. TA-DAH. Did I mention turn the power OFF first?? It may bite ya.
