Overall a very easy fit, the key for me was being gentle with the glass if your door has an extreme crack (as mine did). If it does, the glass can easily fall out of the frame. The plastic clips that hold the glass to the frame are also quite fragile, so just gently work the glass into the clips without forcing it. Took me about 20 minutes.1) Remove 3 screws from side of door2) Remove 2 screws from bottom of door3) Carefully slide outer frame of of door. If crack is extreme (as mine was), be careful that the glass does not completely fall out when removing frame4) I used a putty knife to carefully pry up the top part of the frame as it has clips that fit into slots on the door. 4)Once frame is removed use screwdriver to remove door handle5) Remove glass from frame and replace with new one. Use the putty knife to gently push the clips onto to it as the plastic clips that hold the glass look easily breakable6) Re-attach door handle7) Slide new frame back onto door, push top clips down into door top and replace all screws
Remove 6 screws, remove glass and black molding. Then I placed those items in the new frame. Placed the frame on the Hinges and replaced the screws. It was that easy.
