Hello Carrie, thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately we do not have a repair video for cable 946-04229B. I apologize for the inconvenience.
This drive cable is a couple inches shorter than the cable im replacing. Are you sure its correct?

Hello Jerrod, Thank you for the question. Yes, the Part Number: 946-04229B is the correct part for the cable. Craftsman has discontinued the original part and has replaced it with this cable. They said it should still work on your model. Hope this helps, good luck with this repair!
Is this the correct cable for controlling the auger? If not could you tell me what that part number is? Also, the spring that releases the auger pulley against the belt also broke what part number is that spring? Thank you for your cooperation. Fran

Hello Fran, Thank you for contacting us. Upon reviewing the model provided, I show that 946-04229B is the correct part number for the auger cable. The part number of the spring is 932-0264. Good luck with your repair!

    Easy to id and order.
    The part was easy to identify and order. The only criticism was it took over 2 weeks to get here which may be due to Christmas USPS volume.
    Guest - December 30, 2019 Verified Purchase
    Worked as it should
    Installed fairly easily , right part.
    Guest - January 26, 2021 Verified Purchase
    Part was about 2 inch too short.
    Part is advertised as a replacement part and it looks exactly like the correct part but it is about 2 inch too short and will not work with out making an extension.
