As per the instructions, I pried off the cover and removed the inside piece. Then, using the socket set and extension bar, I loosened the retaining bolt. I lifted the whole upper part of the agitator and removed the inner working (those parts that the kit replaced). I broke off the tabs as instructed.
The instructions mentioned a specific grease (which I didn't have and was not aware of when I ordered the repair kit), but a search on the Internet indicated that many people put the washer back together without the grease.
The new parts are not an exact match for the replaced parts, but it was easy to follow the directions to build the new section. Putting the whole thing together again was easy.
