Undid the three screws (one just held the light, which had to be detached but not removed from the refer), cut the lines several inches up, and removed the old reservoir. No quick connects came w/the part, and 5/16" items are not available in most stores, including Home Depot, Lowes, Ace, True Value, etc, so had to order separately on line (search 5/16" quick connect) (another $12 with S&H). Don't use a pinching type tool to cut the lines - not a smooth cut. I used a miniature pipe cutter I happened to have because I am a hobbyist. Cut the lines on the new reservoir at same place as old one, pushed the quick connects on, pushed the QCs on the lines sticking out of the refer, replaced screws, and was done. Quick connects should be included with this part.
