Handed the part to my son. He unscrewed 5 screws in the base of the microwave, it dropped down. The light mechanism was clearly in view. With the exception of some corrosion on the old piece, it was simple to remove and replace, put back together, screw back up and all worked fine.

The handle had been glued on previously, and broke off when I grabbed it. The glue had traveled into the holes where the plastic extends into the door for the screws to grab, so getting the screws and broken phalanges out was not easy. Using needle nosed pliers and an awl to scrape out the old glue worked, but it took some time.
Once I was able to get the screws loose and pop out the broken bits, the new part fit perfectly and is working like new.

I had to use a pair of needle nose pliers to hold the threaded plastic remnants of the original handle steady, while I used a phillips head screw driver to back each screw out. This process required careful use of the pliers as they would slip, a LOT... But once the orignal pieces were out, the new handle went in perfectly. And just in time to start cooking Thanksgiving dinner!

Turned the power to the unit off. Removed seven- (7) small screws from the base plate, not removing the rear screws. The plate dropped a few inches allowing me to get to the light socket.

I removed one- (1) screw that allowed the socket to be removed. I then detached the two- (2) electrical leads. I now installed the new socket, replacing the leads and the screw along with a new bulb. I pushed the bottom plate back into the up position and replaced the seven- (7) screws.

Turned the power back on and we were good to go.
