Turn off water supply. Remove insulated cover (1/4" Nut driver) secured by 1 1/4" screw. Remove two 1/4" screws holding water filter housing in place on back o fridge. Noted the inlet and outlet water tubes and removed them from the housing using needle nose pliers (the elbows are removed by compressing the flange into the elbow while simultaneously pulling the tube in the other direction from the elbow). O-ring was placed in new filter cup. Plug filter into housing and screw filter cup onto the threads of housing. Insert tubing into new elbows, pressing them until they seat. Press other end of elbows onto nipples of filter housing, paying attention to the orientation noted above during dis-assembly. Attach filter housing to back of fridge with two 1/4" screws. Attach insulated cover over the housing with remaining 1/4" screw. Turn on the water supply and check for leaks. If no leaks, allow water to run through the system until all air is expelled.
