You do remove the piece above the door to access the hinge. The hinge is spot welded and doesn't unscrew or separate from the frame of the microwave. You must pry the inner plastic choke seal off the door which is around the border of the inner door. Pry this off, then pry the top hinge to release from the door receptacle. Then you can pull the door off. There isn't a video to show you how to remove the door, but below is a video on how to remove the choke so you can work on removing the door. Also, the plastic vent panel above the door has 2 screws coming in from the top that you unscrew, then you can pull the vent panel off since you asked how to remove that part.
