First I removed the three screws on the top hing of the refrigerator door so that we could lift it off the bottom hing. Socket wrench bits for my drill made that fast and simple. I lifted the door off the bottom hing to find the door closing plastic cam to be broken in several pieces. The hardest part was getting the cylinder shape piece that had broken off the cam out from inside the door. This way we would be able to insert the new piece. Needle nose pliers are the right tool for that job since the hole is small and the plastic just frays under force from regular pliers. It took some force and patience to get that out, but once all the broken pieces were removed, reassembly was quick and easy
