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.

Remove inside door panel by removing the screws along the 2 sides and top. Remove the panel. The latch assembly is sandwiched under the panel and door, so it just needs to be lifted out to make unplugging the switch connectors easier. Assemble by plugging switch connectors on to the new unit and then place the latch assemble back on the door aligning the screw holes. Lay the inside panel on the door and start the all the screws half way to ensure proper alignment. Finish by tightening all the screws.
