The right hand pin that holds the liftable clear door over the lowest drawer broke. It is a molded piece, so the whole right end cap had to be replaced. The large lower drawer, the two smaller drawers above it and the glass divider/shelf all had to be taken out. The end cap was removed using a 1/4" allen wrench hand driver, and the whole assembly had to be angle out at abour 45 degrees to release a connect temperature control slide from a slot in the back of the refrigerator (I was not expecting that, but it was not hard to free it). Several pieces had to be removed from the orginal end cap and placed in the same position on the new unit. I did this without looking at any instructions (of course), and it took a few minutes to figure out how to get it apart. Previewing instructions would not be a bad idea for those who don't want to figure out the puzzle. Reassembly was easy, and I then just reversed the process to put the fully assembled unit in its' place, put the drawers and shelf in and reattach the liftable door to the pin.
