The lower mounting lug for the handle of the above microwave has broken. A replacement handle is available, but how is the door disassembled? The parts diagram seems to show the door assembly snaps together, but I don't see an obvious starting point.

Thanks,

PlainBill

Thanks, RegUs_, that did it. It just took a little more force than I was willing to apply without guidance.
