You can remove the evap panel without taking the bottom rail guides.out... or take out just one. During reinstall, put the bottom of the panel in first, making sure it is outside of the drain pan. Btw don't forget to pull the thermistor through the panel before you set the top part of the panel in place. It ia very easy to forget.
You can also try removing the freezer door and sliding rails together thus avoiding the frustration of having to set the door onto the rails during reinstall. Use a long screw driver (I find that a really long screw driver.. uh uh.. longer.. is indispensable during several stages when working on this freezer drawer from hell) to press a rail tab in, pull the door on that side sllghtly to slide that rail out just enough to cover the tab and keep it from relocking. Do the other side, then slide the door and rails out as one piece.
To reinstall, simply align the rails (balance the door on your foot if you must) then close the door. Easy peasy! But what is that little piece of plastic you placed inside the basket? Uh huh, no need to hide it.. thermistor cover right? .. forgot to pull the thermistor through the evap panel again didn't ya? Look on the bright side.. you get to practice removing and reinstalling the door and rails again. I aint laughing, only chucking for how do you think I became so good at it?
