Fridge coil removal

Well, here I go again. I put my 62 tradewind extra parts in the classifieds to give them to members that would give them good homes. So far so good. A nice lady called and wanted the old fridge and sent a guy to pick it up. Still good. Then the problems began. Wouldn't fit through the door. Removed fridge door. Still no fit. Removed trim around door. Still no go. Now I find that the coil unit is removable and just cant figure that out. I must have removed a pound and a half of screws, plus trim, and still just don't see how it comes off. I have searched the forums, dealer sites, etc. and can not figure it out.
Any suggestions, besides a cutting torch, or a hack saw.
thanks, bill b.

While the one I removed was a bit younger the unit is just friction fitted into the freezer one the screws are removed. There should only be a thermal compound between the unit's element and the shell within the freezer.

If the compound has hardened it may be hard to remove.
