Trying to get to the display PCB to replace it, but can NOT figure out how to get the front panel cover off of the dispenser unit. Anybody know what the trick is ? See picture of my french door and dispenser please...bottom freezer. Hopefully do not access by taking the inside of the door apart !

Thanks

Take out the little water drip tray.  Using a pair of needles nose pliers, grab the rail bracket where the drip tray was attached to and pull towards with one hard pull.  It will sound like the something broke but that's how you pop this cover off.

WOW....we will try this in a bit. Sounds pretty weird to just grab a piece of plastic and yank on it, especially with pliers. Just pull it up and towards yourself is what you are saying Wild ?

THANK YOU.

Well, I got tired of using grippy gloves as my fingers are getting older.  The plier tool came in handy and I realized that it's way less painful. 

Yes, pull the cover directly towards you and it will unsnap itself.

I tape off around the control and use door panel removal tools to pop it out. I'm too afraid I'll break one of the mounts just pulling it out

 Well the old needle nose worked the trick. Once I had the nerve to give it a stronger tug, it popped right out. Great advice and reply.

THANKS !!  :thanks:
