Plastic handle had broken

First dissconnect power, and remove the 6 phillips-head screws from the back/upper side of the door, next remove the 2 torx screws holding the handle assembly, and unplug the 2 micro switches attached to the handle. Reverse this procedure and you're finished. It's so easy, a caveman could do it.

The plastic handle broke off the door latch and the brackets broke so someone threw out the fence.

First I removed the six screws from the door panel, then I removed the old door latch assembly, there were two torx screws and four electrical connectors. I reattached the new electical connectors and screwed it back in place. Then I put the door panel back on with the screws. It was easy, my husband thought I would not be able do it.

Door latch broke

Removed the screws that held the cover on, then removed the 2 screws that held the door latch in place. Disconnected the broken door latch and attached the new one. Put all the screws back in and that was it! Also, the shipment of the part was SO QUICK!

Broken door latch assembly

This repair turned out quite easy. I removed the 6 phillips head screws that held the door latch cover in place, dropped the cover and let it hang while I removed the latch assembly that was held in place by two torx head screws. I used needle nosed pliers to gently disconnect the wiring connectors from the old latch assembly one at the time, then carefully attached the wire to corresponding lug on the new latch. Once all wiring was transferred, I installed the new latch using the two torx head screws, replaced the cover, and reinstalled the 6 phillips head screws to secure the cover. There was no need to replace the gasket, so I'm holding on to it for future use.
