The plastic shelf cracked

My Repair & Advice
I bought a replacement shelf said to be compatible but found that the original drawer slides from my 2005 refrigerator do not fit in the slots of the replacement part. There are tabs that hold the slides in place that are thicker on the new part, reducing the width of the slot.
APP advised that there is no other part available, and replacement drawer slides are also not available, making it impossible to fix the problem.
Given no other option, I used a dremel tool to carefully thin the tabs. This ended up being very easy to do. It looks pretty rough, but the trimmed area is not visible when installed.
