Screws NOT included.
1) Using two flat bladed screw drivers, gently pry between the plastic door inside-face-plate and the plastic door frame to release plastic retention clips. Start on the bottom edge closest to the handle and work towards the hinge end. Next unhook the handle side, then the top edge. Unhook the hinge side last. When the last hook is released, the inside face plate will be free.2) Use a small phillips screw driver to remove the slotted metal door cover. This will expose the two bolts which hold the top and bottom ends of the handle to the door. Note that it is particularly helpful if you have a MAGNETIZED screw driver for this step and for the re-installation step.3) Unscrew the two bolts holding the top and bottom of the handle. KEEP THESE BOLTS - the new handle does NOT come with new bolts.4) Attach the new handle using the two bolts. On the handle I installed, it was necessary to apply unusually high torque in order to fully seat the handle. If I hadn't done this the handle would have felt slightly loose each time I pulled the door open.5) Replace the slotted metal door cover.6) Snap the inside face plate back into place starting with the hinge side first.

We removed the black panel on the inside of the door first using a flat head screwdriver. Took off the 6 screws from the next black panel to remove the outside of the door. This took a little bit longer than I hoped. We finally used a small pry bar to release the clips holding it on even after the screws were removed. Changing the handle was no problem but putting the outside cover to the door back on took some effort to make sure it was lined up properly. All in all it was a much cheaper fix than replacing the microwave. Thank you for the directions your website provided.
