To replace the camera door, simply unscrew one screw under the door and three screws in the door to disconnect the cable that connects the camera to the door.

It's unnecessary to disassemble the camera to this extent. You just need to disconnect the ribbon cable (which involves removing the spring loaded guide next to the door hinge and unlatch the connector underneath) and unscrew the door pivot screw on the underside of the camera. This document lays it out quite nicely:
