Per directions, I pried the drive off the screw. I was surprised that the drive came off the screw by just a prying action, but that's how it's done. The metal base to the drive is softer than the screw so there was no stripping of the screw threads. Then I just threaded the new drive onto the screw and done.

The longest time spent was in getting the part out of the package and reading the directions. All told it took less than 5 minutes.

The rubber part of the drive appears to be very brittle as it chipped off the drive gears. But it was easy to repair and they do last about 5 years.
