Removed: tower and spray assembly, pump housing cover, volute cover, nylon retainer, lower impeller, sleeve and seal assembly. Replaced the sleeve and seal assembly and then the impeller. Reassembled. The small, square hole, nylon retainer was not shown in the diagram and it took me a while to recognize that it had to slip off the shaft before the broken impeller and sleeve and seal assembly could be removed. That was the trick.
