With a flat blade screwdriver, pry up gently on the Upper Rack Track, pull out the end caps, and remove the rack. Pull the Feed Tube down out of the clip in the ceiling, Install the Upper Wash Arm on the Feed Tube, insert the Push-In Screw from below and push the Screw Cover down from above to snap everything together.

I also replaced the Lower Spray Arm Seal. First remove the Lower Dish Rack then remove the Lower Spray Arm by grasping the Lower Spray Arm Support/Hub and twisting the arm counter-clockwise to unscrew it, Pull the arm and hub out, now twist the Rear Feed Cap clock-wise to dislodge the Feed Tube and disconnect the cap. The seal is underneath.
