Need advice on removing this part. Do not want to damage refrigerator liner trying to remove this. This part clips in and is in an awkward place at the top right rear of the refrigerator cabinet. Any one ever have any experience with this one???

Bluesette for Model Number msd2651kgw

ANSWER Hello bluesette. Look at the pictures of the part. You will see 4 tabs on the plate 12688503. These secure the plate to the liner. You will use a flat blade putty knife and pry the tabs out of the liner. Be careful doing this and don't crack the liner. This is the only way to remove the plate out of the until. Start with the front and then do the back of the plate.
