I have seen what you are talking about. Basically the Freon line is directly on top, and there is a small closed bin (aka the freezer portion) directly underneath it that gets the brunt of the cooling. Yes if it doesnt interfere with the coolant lines, then by all means take it out. However you are gonna have a hell of a time knowing where to cut for a tap tower unless you go through the door.
