This part fixes the following symptoms:
The old design was easier to install than the new one. I assume that the new part was changed to make it less expensive to manufacture. Installation of the new part was difficult but doable. Basically, the bottom of the door was located on the hinge tab and the top was then rotated into place until it snapped into place. Some force was required to get the door into place. A large screw driver was used to force the top hinge down so the door could be rotated onto the hinge tab. It would be possible to damage the door if too much force was used.

I simply followed instructions provided with the replacement door. A butter knife was used to gently pry open the panel enclosing the inside of the door. Removing the panel exposed the pins holding the door on its supports. Once the old door was lifted off, a similar operation with the new door allowed it to be set in place. The inside panel was gently snapped back into place and - bingo - job finished in about 5 minutes! (In all fairness, I had learned how to remove the inside door panel while diagnosing the problem with the old one. That probably saved me 10-15 minutes on the final repair.)
The door was an easy off easy on type, we slipped the old door off quickly. It was a bit tricky getting the new on for some reason . It took a few tries. WE were most impressed with the speed and accuracy in getting the parts from Parts Select I got the correct replacement door the very next day, and we did not request any expedited handling.
I bought the door assembly online while in Afghanistan. My wife who has no mechanical ability installed the door in less than 15 min. She used a flathead screwdriver to gently pry open the hinges (they returned to their original position afterward) by applying pressure on the bottom hinge and removed the old door. Repeat to put the new one on. Most of the time was figuring out how to get the old door off.
