First I gotta say 'thank you' to the reviewer who pointed out that replacing the housing was better and cost no more than replacing the plastic housing fasteners that had failed. The metal screws are a much better fastener than the plastic snap-ins. I would have rated this repair as extremely easy, except that I was not expecting the screws to require a star drive. I used a pair of needle nose pliers to tighten the screws enough to make the upper shelf functional. Then, while the load of catch up dishes was running, I found a set of star drives and took up the slack when the load was done.
