Slid dishwasher out from under counter about six or eight inches. I was able to see where to attach the new spring and linkage. There are many holes in the base of dishwasher so that you may adjust the door balance by choosing a different hole. I used the same one on the right side that was used on the left side and it just balances perfectly. Slid it back in and attached the screws at the top and adjusted the feet with a 3/16 socket and small rachet;took about 30 minutes.
