Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful
The plastic "axles" that hold the wheels on the upper rack have broken. According to the parts diagram I need #4, the adjuster on both sides. AP 5272176, I think. My model has the premium top rack adjuster, which seems to have #2 "housing" on them.
I want to replace the adjusters, but don't know how to get the old ones off, without breaking something.
Your help by e-mail perhaps with pictures or a video would be much appreciated. Thanks.
Answer Dan, the rack adjuster W10712394 is the replacement parts listed for your model and can be used on the left or right side. To replace start by prying the tabs at the top of the adjuster cover out of the square holes. You can then pry the tabs at the bottom of that cover out of the round holes on each side of the positioner. You will then remove the cover Once that cover is removed, you can take of the positioner. Then remove the clips from the adjuster assembly. Once you remove those clips, the adjuster assembly can be removed from the rack.
