This part fixes the following symptoms:
Removed the 3 screws using a socket set. Removed 1 screw with the broken plastic piece off of the ice bucket motor by holding the broken plastic with pliers and removed screw. Be aware that the glide rail screws are standard socket size while the ice bucket motor screw was slightly larger (don't remember the exact measurements). Attached new Bucket Glide. Fixed.

PITA to take apart, finally had to use two screwdrivers to pry up on the mechanism that turns the auger in order to gain access. Once I figured that out, the rest of the repair was a breeze.
When I arrived from work, the job was already done and it was installed by my 18 year old son in 15 minutes without my supervision.
Removed four screws from broken glide bracket and auger bracket and remove. Replaced with new glide bracket and reinserted ice bucket to connect auger with auger motor. Two socket size job.
I think there were 3 philip screws to remove, take off the existing glide and replace with the new part. A very simple repair and saved about 175.00 if called in a professional, Thanks Part Select
I had previously removed the motor by unplugging 2 plugs and had the motor sitting on my kitchen counter awaiting for the part from the site. On receipt of the part, we removed the broken left glide, installed the new glide, re plugged the motor and attached it to the new glide. If it weren't for my hubby trying to find the right socket tool for the screws, installation would have been less than 15 minutes. The screw that attaches the glide to the ice motor is a different size than the ones that screw into the side of the fridge.
1-Remove the ice bucket. 2-Nut driver 1/4 inch to remove three screws in bracket. 3-8mm nut driver to remove one screw in motor mount (where broken). Install new part. Reverse order to complete repair.
Being patient with the project and finding the correct tools to use. It was a bit of a balancing act. But I have my new slide in and back to making ice. Only regret is the by farthest back screw is not snug as much as I would like. It is in but a little loose.
