To get the old parts off you use a pair of pliers. You have to turn it to the left to get the metal pieces to release inside. If not, you'll make a big hole and the new part will not fit as well.

To put the new parts in, you insert the stud in the hole and turn it to the right with the pliers until the flat part is horizontal. This will cause the metal pieces to stick out behind the wall of the refrigerator and hold the piece in place.

PS It is easy enough a woman can do it. This is coming from a woman whose husband is too lazy to do it.
