I followed the instructions on the video. It was very easy. I could have done it without help but it would have taken longer and I wouldn't have been as confident. Anyone, literally anyone can do this if they watch the video. The only difficulty was removing the electrical connections. That required a pair of pliers. The old handle just pivots out and the new one goes in just as easily.

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.
