I actually followed one of your previous buyers who had the same issue as I. Replacing the grille vent is easy. The door was just a little harder as I wanted to make sure I did not break the glass. Unscrewed and popped off the old pane and snapped the new one in place and put the screws back in. On a side note your site was very easy to use and easy to find the parts I needed quickly.

I removed the plastic exterior of the door. The plastic exterior has to be pried off. The handle is fastened to the new exterior plastic face, and this is snapped on.
Used flathead screwdriver around the interior edges of the front panel to pry off the front panel. The handle comes with it and along with a glass panel inside. Pry off that glass panel and transer it to the new front panel and pop it back in. I removed the two screws from the cracked handle and used them to install the handle to the new front panel. But, before this I added a couple of plastic washers to hopefully distribute the load better against the front panel and maybe prolong the life of the repair. I cleaned the interior glass, since that's hopefully the last we'll ever see of it. Take the whole assy and just snap it back in place on the door. This $100 in parts probably saved me $600-700 for a new microwave / over-oven install charge.
Part came in 24 hrs w/ no special "fast shipping requested" . Old door pried off fairly easily using a stiff but thin butter knife. Putting new door on was easy but only with 2 people: one person holding the handle side open and the other handling the new door. Fit the new door on the hinge side first and slowly push top and bottom edges inward until clicks are heard as the individual hooks engage the frame. When done, go back along each top and bottom edge to be sure all hooks are engaged and no gaps occur btwn door and frame. Trying to do it alone with no one holding the door open and steady would have been difficult.
Unscrewed three screws and used putty knife to pry door cover off unscrew door handle put on new face plate and redo the three screws and clip back on oh you have to unclip the glass part and put on to the new face plate before putting on new door front to microwave
Having read a couple of other repair stories, I took out the screws (3 ea) on the end of the door and pried off the front door panel. There was a piece of glass sandwiched in between, and luckily it did not fall and break. Then I removed the handle, which was in good shape and installed it on the new door. The new panel snapped into place and I was done.
It was very easy...perfect fit and most impressed with the quick delivery!
popped off old door, removed handle, reinstalled handle on new door & popped it back on
