Removed the 2 screws then the handle and then replaced the handle with the new one and placed the screws. Very easy and did not take much time!!!!

Super easy repair, getting the part was just as easy. I did a simple search with the model number and was able to verify that the part I was ordering was the correct one by using the many pictures and diagrams available.
