Removed the old part by removing inside frame. Used a screwdriver to gently wedge it out, then had access to the screws holding it to the metal frame. The part needed (door trim) was white, but no longer available. I ordered the part in black color. The original part had faded from white to a cream. I took the broken part to Home Depot and they made up a paint that matched the faded color. I painted the part with a foam brush. Diluted the paint to avoid runs and painted several times. It went back together fairly well except make sure you use double back tape to hold glass assembly in place. It would be better if two people do this job. one holding the glass and frame while the other is attaching the door trim from the other side. The door trim has some snap in parts that go into the metal frame along the hing side, make sure that they snap in so that the door trim dose not touch the main cabinet when opening and closing the door.
