Removed the upper spray arm and hose to rear of washer by detaching the hose clip at the back of the upper dish basket and removing the screw at the bottom of the spray arm. Reinstalled the new one piece hose assembly and the new upper spray arm by replacing the screw at the bottom of the spray arm and attaching the new hose clip at the back of the upper dish basket.

My original top spray unit was held in place by two screws. The new top spray unit uses only one screw but the second attachment point is still part of the new unit. I drilled a hole for the second screw. I removed the two screws that held my damaged top spray in place and removed the damaged top sprayer. The small hose to the top sprayer easily slides out of the unit when the screws are removed. I reinstalled the new top sprayer using the two original screws.
