Unscrewed 4 screws from the back, bottom of the rack area which hold the cover. Twist out the old Piston and Nut which is threaded to fit securely (needed some elbow grease to get the old one out). Twist the new part in and place the cover back in place with the 4 screws. Done. Dishwasher works like it was brand new. Cleanest dishes in the country... ;)
