1. Remove any screws still holding the switch mechanism or motor in place
2. The motor that powers the auger had cracked the plastic and broken free from the enclosure. I removed the screw holding the enclosure from underneath
3. There is a wire harness that supplies power to the motor and the switch. Squeeze the top and bottom of the harness and pull the whole thing out. (You don't need to remove any wires from the motor or switch it should come out in one piece.)
4. Getting off the auger bracket takes a little brute force. The tread on it is left hand.
5. Remount the motor and the switch, then push the enclosure back in 3/4 of the way and plug-in the harness.
6. Don't forget the mount screw underneath the enclosure.
