RF28R7201SR Samsung Refrigerator Broken screw mount and retaining tab inside ice maker housing - Trashed or replaceable?

We are a scratch and dent appliances shop. This came on a recent truckload. It's a french door with the ice maker unit in the upper left corner dumping into the door dispenser and is the unit notorious for freezing. When you remove the bucket, there is a plastic cover along the left side removable by taking out a single screw.

The receiver for this screw is broken from the housing. I though I might be able to jury rig a fix for this, but then I discovered the plastic tab at the rear to release the auger is also broken. I dug into to see if I could replace the entire housing, but I don't see it listed as a part anywhere.

I see the bucket, icemaker and auger assemblies, but not the big box it all mounts into. Is this replaceable? I'm guessing not. I was hoping to get it back to factory condition before selling.... I really don't like jury rigged solutions on new product. Thanks! Might end up selling it as a garage fridge at a low price....
