Remove upper hinge with socket set. I found it helpful to remove the door spring (on bottom of door) in order to be able to lift out the door from lower hinge. Replace bushing. Replace door, upper hinge, you're done. I did note that lower hinge post (~10mm OD) had worn against the frame due to the loss of bushing, losing ~1-2mm of metal. Would not have seen this until the door was off. Was concerned this will lead to premature failure of the new bushing, but it will be a much harder job to replace lower hinge (looks like I will need to empty and tip the fridge to access lower side), plus I didn't have the lower hinge part handy (~$40-45), so I will replace both if the bushing fails again.
