Removed softener container on agitator then the round cover under it to access the agitator bolt. Used socket wrench with extension to remove bolt. I then lifted the top half of agitator out of the washer and dumped cog housing. Replaced cogs with new ones (they're convex and fit in slots in the housing) and then placed the housing back in the agitator while aligning the holes on the cog housing with the tabs on the agitator.
