I opened the refrigerator cleared off the top shelf. Next I Turned off the water supply and removed the filter. I then removed the cover which is held on by 1/4 hex head screw (this is good to know because you can not see the screw head and the parts list shows it as a Phillips screw). I then removed the two 1/4 inch hex head screws that held the the upper half of the filter assembly removed both input and output water lines the fittings are the kind where you push in the lock assembly and the tubing comes right out I then removed the fittings completely off of one of the water lines (check to see which line can spare it) and cut off about 2 inches of tubing and put it in to the fittings where the upper filter half was connected. Reassembled all water lines and turned on the water, checked for leaks. This short piece of tubing allowed my ice maker and water on the door to work till the part arrived (which I must say showed very quickly only one day). When the part arrived I reassembled the filter in reverse, this took less time. I saved my little cheater tubing as this is not the first time I have had to replace that filter it is just in that spot where thing on the top shelf can hit it and break it
