Talking Removing Old Fridge

I recently purchased an '73 Ambassador with a Dometic RM75 refrigerator that was only working on the gas side. After running it one time it has quit and I noticed the smell of ammonia so after reading other threads I've decided to replace unit rather than trying to repair it. After removing every screw I could find and partially prying wall out to see if I could find any more screws on the side I seem to have hit a brick wall. I don't see anything in the rear that look mounting screws. Could anyone out there give me more info? Thanks Fletch8918

There should be 2 large screws in the back at each corner driven down into the floor.

You may have to remove some of the front trim to see all of the screws that secure the front

Fletch there are two aluminium brackets mounted to the forward side of the fridge and the top of the fridge. These brackets are then mounted to the interior panels. To access these brackets you must remove the bulkhead(partition) wall on the forward facing side of the fridge. This may also require removal of the overhead cabinet. The bulkhead I am talking about has the fold up TV shelf on it.
