Multiple issues with ice dispenser

My Repair & Advice
Our ice dispenser door wasn't closing all the way, we had a steady leak from under the trim piece around the bottom that has ruined the front of the freezer door, Crack in the trim piece from trying to remove it to fix leak, and ice & water not dispensing, sometimes ice would dispense but only sporadically. We replaced the door, the crank & spring, and the solenoid, and attempted to change the trim piece as shown in the video, but it was apparently not a video for our model, I ended up bending my putty knife, breaking the already broken trim piece into several pieces and discovered that mine is actually screwed into place AND doesn't have to come off to replace the dispenser parts. I am now searching for answers on whether or not I can remove the inside of the freezer door to access the screws for the trim piece & getting conflicting answers. Our refrigerator is over 12 years old & other than replacing a few parts every few years that haven't amounted to even half the cost of a new one, is working good.
