Simply remove 5 or 6 self tapping screws to lower the cardboard backing with a 5/16 nut driver. Loosen two screws that hold the valve to the metal lip low on the back. Push 3 easy-connect fittings towards the valve while pulling the poly tube out at the same time. Replace the tubes by simply pushing into the fitting. I did these one at a time so I wouldn't get them mixed up. Fasten the valve back onto the metal lip, and screw the cardboard back on. Move the Fridge back and the job was all done~!
