slide the bottom drip tray off exposing the front panel screws. Remove the screws and pull front panel off part way and unplug cable. Unscrew the water tube from the water paddle. Unscrew the spring retainer holding both of the paddles near the center. Unplug the ribbon connector. Disconnect the damper rod from the paddle assembly (it goes to a small piston in a black rubber cub). Jockey the paddles out. It helps to look at the replacement parts to see how best to get the paddles out. Re-install everything in reverse order.
