The part’s picture on the site was not identical to the part delivered, but the function was essentially the same. It had different connectors to the outgoing tubes and a slightly different method of attachment to the refrigerator (it required 1 additional skew - not included). After verifying the part would still work, I shut off the water. Then I disconnected the two outgoing tubes. Made sure I had bucket handy to handle excess water. Then I removed the part using an adjustable wrench (1 screw) and then detached the incoming tube. Attached the incoming tube to the new part and then remounted (2 screws). And then I attached the two outgoing tubes and turned on the water. It works great and I have no plumbing experience.
