This would have been an extremely easy job if the screws behind the catch pan hadn't been rusted.

After pulling the catch pan off, we had to cut a slit for a flathead screwdriver into the heads of the screws and only the middle one came out while the other two heads broke off.

There were two other places for screws (on either side of the middle screw )that weren't being used so when we put it back together we had to drill two holes through the panel that the screws were holding in place and find screws that would fit so we could use the middle screw hole and the two that hadn't previously been used so that when we put it back together it would have some stability.

Replacing the ice actuator was easy and putting it back together was easy.

The descriptions of other repairs for this part were dead-on accurate and very helpful.
