This repair didn't go as easily as I had hoped because I made a couple of mistakes. I'll describe them so maybe someone can avoid it.
First, in order to remove the old part, you only need to remove the hex head screw on the lower left side (underneath) of the ice enclosure. The whole plastic piece will then slide up and can be pulled out. I removed all the screws in the very back of the plastic tray (near the broken plastic from around the motor) before removing the part and several parts fell out when I removed the tray. Luckily I was able to see how they go back together. Just wait to remove those screws until you pull the plastic unit out and you'll be okay. The other challenge was disconnecting the motor/solenoid from the back of the refridgerator. You can't see it so you have to go by feel. Pinch the top and bottom of the plastic connector and pull straight out. It should come out easily. You'll have to put it back in by feel too. Once the old part was out of the refridgerator, the new part was easy to assemble. Be careful that the wires don't disconnect from the solenoid or the motor or make sure you know how to reattach them. Other than those items, it was an easy repair.
