Replacing the heating element in my dometic fridge.

Ordered the RM2193 heating element. I found a video on replacing it on Youtube however I'm a little paranoid. Is there any special way to take apart the "boiler" cylinder so you can remove the element. I've seen videos of larger ones that have a cut out for removing them however this one doesn't have it. the unit is closed by the 2 edges of the sheet metal being folded together.

Has anyone done this before? And if so, how did you take it apart?
