removing an icemaker trim panel from fridge front - is it impossible?

wife and I have a side by side with a broken "ear" that's part of icemaker "crushed/cubed/water" switch. it seems impossible to remove that panel, and it's restricting my access to the switch ITSELF (the switch is actually operated by a "dummy sliding ear" that covers it, which is now BROKEN).
can't get the panel covering the switch itself OFF so I can replace the "dummy slider ear" thing....there aren't any visible screws holding it in place - maybe it has 'bulgy studs' that unpop' from rubber 'seats' in the doorframe? or maybe it's held on by internal screws, from the _inside_ of the door?
please take a look at the six photos I posted of this dern thing at
http://members.cox.net/machines/index2.html
-especially- the newer photos numbered PDR0023 & PDR0028 (recaptioned for clarity, also now with the _complete_ make and model number spec's)
thanks for your help,
b. wildered

i got a whirlpool side by side and it might be different, but on mine there is a plastic tray right under the ice/water dispenser that you have to push down on and also pull towards you to get out.. then you see two screws holding the whole dispenser contraption in place. you remove the two screws at the bottom and then pull it out towards you and the top will go down and out(its held in place by a hook effect(yours might be the same??).. one thing when messing with the plastic in a refrigerator you always have to warm up the plastic with a hair dryer or you gonna be replacing part as cold plastic breaks pretty easy.. i learned the hard way....
