When I tried to remove the handle, I discovered someone (teenage step daughters) attempted to glue the broken handle to hide the fact that it was broken. It did not work. The handle broke again, leaving part of the handle assemply suck in the door. I had to use a cordless drill to drill out the glued in portion of the handle. Fortunately, when the drill bit dug it, it broke the glue seal and the broken insert came out. After that, it was a breeze to install the replacement door handle.

The handle broke at the bottom.

It was very simple...there were two screws on the inside of the door that held the handle. Removing the screws was easy and the new handle lined up perfectly. I replace the screws and the whole event took less than 15 minutes. The handle arrived from PartSelect the day after I ordered it and even though they had projected 3-5 days for delivery.
