I REMOVED 4 OR 5 SCREWS ON THE BACK OF THE COMPARTMENT THAT HOLDS THE START SWITCH. I REMOVED 1 SCREW THAT HELD THE START SWITCH IN & PULLED OFF TWO WIRES THAT CONNECTED TO THE OLD START SWITCH & CONNECTED THEM TO THE NEW START SWITCH. I THEN PUT ALL OF THE SCREWS BACK IN AND EVERYTHING WORKED FINE. VERY EASY REPAIR.
