I would add three things to the other excellent hints on this page: 1. I stacked cushions from my patio furniture under the door. The cover plate laid snugly on them and basically never moved, making one man re-installation very easy. 2. There are two plastic tabs near the hinges which keep the cover plate in line. If you slide the cover plate over them first, they help hold the cover in place and the re-installation goes quickly. 3. I taped the vinyl cover up to make removal of the dispenser easier and taped it down to make sure it did not get folded when putting the door back together. On ordering parts: it is not clear that the rinse aid cap comes with the new dispenser unit. It does.
