I need to change the water switch in the freezer door, how do I get to it?

There are no screws on the inside to remove the shelves and I tried to pop off the trim around the ice and water but afraid I'm gonna break it.

Thanks JW, but actually I figured it out, there are 2 places on the bottom for the face place to stick something in and pop it off, then lift it up and its off.


It just really holds on those 2 lil places on the bottom!


Found that the 2 lil pins and one clip that hold the micro switch were broke on the water side, and one pin on the ice side, seems when you push the levers a lil hard they tend to push against the micro switches beyond normal and cause those parts to break.
