First, I have to say I live in the next state over, and I recieved the parts the next day. Yeah! OK, I removed the adjacent drawers *and the removable lower storage shelves on the doors for clearance*. Taking out the broken lid is easy. The new one is a tight fit. The right side has a raised pad on the pivot point, but the left one does not. I worked the peg (pivot point) in on the right side and slowly and carefully pushed the stationary plastic left side in slightly(and sprung the lid slightly) to get enough clearance to get in the left peg without breaking the new lid pivot. While doing this, one has to make sure the shelf immediately behind the lid is in place since there are support tabs located on it, and you will have to rework the thing if you don't get them to mate on the installation.

I only had to remove the old filter and install the new one - all by hand. I then ran about 1 to 1and1/2 gallons of water through the filter to clear it.
A WORD OF CAUTION - HOLD YOUR GLASS CLOSE TO THE WATER DISPENSER FOR THE INITIAL FILLING - IT WILL SPIT UNTIL THE AIR IS PURGED FROM THE SYSTEM!!!
An extremely easy repair.

Plastic Hinge Pins Broke on the Fresh Food Door

The repair was fairly simple. The clear plastic viewing panel was removed from the old broken white plastic frame of the door. It snapped out pretty easily and installed on the new door using some care not to break anything else. Then I was able to place the hinge pin in the hole in the side frame and gently bend the door until I could fit the pin on the other side in its respective hole.

Parts Select.com process my order quickly. packaging was excellent. Pars were in original manufacturers boxes and packing. Good job!
