It was very simple taking every thing out and putting new part in. I figure if I had to call a repair person it would have ended up costing us probably around $300.00. We only paid $21.00. We thank you.

Pins holding the door in place are part of the plastic end cap on either side of pantry drawer. Very easy to replace. Need only to remove two bolts holding the broken end cap in place, remove the drawer slide from that piece by removing two more bolts, reinstalling the drawer slide on the replacement end cap, and reinstalling the new end cap. Part was surprisingly cheap and arrived much sooner than indicated.

The piece that holds the shelf trim in place was not molded like the other side.

I took out the glass shelf that sits above the deli drawer. I removed the two veggie drawers. Unscrewed the two sides and pulled them out. The left side went right back in with the new part. The right side gave me concerns as it had the control slide. It came out easily. I had to R/R both roller slides with no problem. I took out the control slider parts and readily reinstalled them on the new piece. Reinstall of completed assembly went in without a hitch. It took very little time, I had the correct parts, screw holes were right on. Perfect fit, perfect part! It's as easy as that!!!

biggest time was the cleaning of the area ;-) for the actual work it was less than 10 mins to replace. remove the three screws and there are two tabs on the back of the replacement part that you need to line up with the slots in the back and it simply snaps in place - put the screws back and you're done

I removed all drawers (including the two above the repair site, removed the left side end cap - it was help in place with only two screws (one screw hole appears never to have had a screw). Swapped out the broken part for the new one, reinstalled the screws, put the drawers back, mounted the operable door to the two hinge pins, and things were fixed.
