There were about 12 screws involved. The front plastic that holds the temperature adjuster wheels needs to be removed, but its screws only need to be loosened - use a small automotive mirror to see the heads of these screws. Slide the front plastic piece toward the front (screw slots on top). Remove the temperature setting wheels - notice how they are installed.. Remove the semi-clear plastic covering over the light bulbs. Remove the light bulbs - NOW they're HOT. Remove the metal sheild that the light bulbs are installed - about 6 screws. Remove the Fresh Food Damper. Use a long phillips screwdriver to remove/replace the top FF Damper screw. I moved the coiled thermostat wire so it does NOT touch anything, so it detects the ambient air in the refrigerator only. I replaced the water filter since I'm in this far anyway. (Make sure the front plastic piece holds the temperature wheels - the numbers should be centered in the display windows. ) Reinstall the items in reverse order and prime the water filter. Monitor the temperature and set the control wheels as needed.
