very simple to remove 2 screws inside door at the top of the ice maker auger shaft, I then pulled straight up on the shaft which disenged it from the motor. Installed the new shaft by placing it in the same position as the one just removed, replaced the plastic cover with the 2 screws, and everything worked fine. It was obviouse looking at the old shaft that it's corners were rounded and that caused it to slip
