The water inlet valve was easy to replace. Just like the video shows. With one exception. I found the two metal brackets were tough to get apart because they were riveted together. So I took the drill with a 5/16 bit and drilled the rivet apart. It might have come apart without drilling but I was afraid of bending the brackets. You don't need to drill clear through both brackets. Just the clean the head of the rivet. It was quick and easy. The bit size is not important just so it is bigger than the rivet head.
