  • There are PH2 screws on the backplate. One is hidden behind the waterhose.

  • All screws have the same length

  • I had to cut the waterhose, when you do this too dont forget to close the faucet. I put some aluminiumfoil on the hose, so there cant get any dust in the hose, because there is lots of dust and its not good when dust gets into the waterhose of the fridge. You must have a 1/4" coupler to reassmble the waterhose when you are done !!!
