    I don't remember it being difficult, so I just took a look.

    It looks like you remove the door handle (1 screw in the center), and the 3 screws surrounding it, and then remove the 3 screws around the latch. 1 on the interior, and 2 on the back edge of the door, above and below the actual latch. Then drop the whole thing down and out the access panel.
    Depending on how yours is broken into 2 pieces, the fishing it out the access panel may be even easier than usual.
