Remove 2 bolts on plastic cover, remove old cable from end,Put new cable on auger clutch end(hard part)had to open up end of cable near spring. Feed cable thru 2 pulleys and up to auger clutch handle. Have to adjust auger clutch cable so auger engages fully when handle is depressed and also stops completely when released. IT WAS REALLY NICE WORKING IN MY DRIVEWAY ON A SUNNY 48 DEGREE DAY ON DEC. 6 IN WISCONSIN!
