FIRST I PULLED UP ON TOP PANEL. NEXT I REMOVED THE TWO SCREWS HOLDING ON THE FRONT PANEL ON. NEXT I PULLED FORWARD AND FRONT PANEL PULLS OUT. I CLEANED THE OLD UPPER & LOWER DRUM GLIDE & DRUM SEAL USING A RAZOR BLADE. I USED THE HIGH TEMP GLUE THAT CAME WITH THE TOP GLIDE. I GLUED THEM BOTH ON & LET SIT FOR ABOUT HALF HOUR. WHILE THE GLUED DRIED I INSTALLED NEW BELT & BELT IDLER PULLEY. I RE-ASSEMBLED THE FRONT PANEL WHILE LINING UP THE DRUM. RE-INSTALLED THE 2 SCREWS. SNAPPED THE TOP PANEL BACK IN PLACE. PLUGGED IT BACK IN & TURNED IT ON. AWESOME NOISE WAS GONE & WORKING GREAT.
