How to change the spring on the dispenser door flap?

I have a refrigerator model #36350622000 and there is frost gathering inside where ice comes out. I need to know, how do I get to item #WR17X11653 door flap and WR2x8663 spring to change them?? Do I need to get at them from the front of the door or dismantle the door from the inside? I have the parts.

First disconnect the power from the unit. To access the dispenser, you will need to pry off the cover. Use a small screwdriver and insert it under the bottom and pry it off. This cover can be very tight but it will pop off. With the cover off, remove the control housing that is held in place with 4 screws. With the housing out, you will have access to the dispenser door and solenoid. Remove the solenoid and the crank retainer and you will be able to remove the door flap and spring. If you need more assistance, you can resubmit your question with more details.
