whirlpool microwave

I need to take the door apart on my 2003 whirlpool over the range microwave to repair a broken door handle. The lower pin which accepts the screw has broken off and I have removed the 3 screws from the end of the door but still don't see how to separate the door panels too allow me to get too the screws that secure the handle. I have been affraid to pry verry hard for fear of breaking something.

the two doors usually just snapped together. You will have to pry it apart, but be very careful you will end breaking the tabs if you do not pry it in the right places. I like to use a couple of putty knives. With a micro that old I would bet the plastic is starting to get brittle so be extra careful
