Door warning light when door is closed

Yesterday my drive to work started with my front passenger door open warning light flashing on and off (2012 R60). After some research on here and any other forum I can find I think it's a bad connection to the latch or a faulty/worn latch. I'm relatively handy with minor repairs (replaced speakers in my wife's Forrester) and the project doesn't scare me too much. Only worried about not finding a step by step removal procedure for an R60.

If it is a worn latch, is there a way to bypass the warning until I can replace? The dinging is starting to affect my worldview.

Has anyone had this issue and can give me some ideas on what to look for when I start pulling apart the door panel to fix? Any pitfalls you ran into when trying to fix? Should I just take it to the dealer and pay?

Thanks, FRV
