How do I replace the globe in a Whirlpool microwave, model

Customer Question

How do I replace the globe in a Whirlpool microwave, model AVM230/WP/WH please?
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: May be 12 years old. Model AVM 230/WP/WH.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If possible
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Looking at the front, the light is on the left side, just inside the door. No screws, but the glass is in a plastic frame which looks as if it can be levered out. The glass in frame does move up and down a couple of mm, but I can't lever it out. There's a trick to it I guess...

My Whirlpool microwave, model AVM230/WP/WH is nothing like the GE microwave in the Youtube video. The light on my machine has to be accessed from inside the oven. The light is placed on the left interior wall with no access from the outside.
