I removed the screws holding the cover in place. used my digital camera to note the wire connections. Then , shut off the power to the unit. Using the torx driver I removed and replaced the broken unit(two screws). It was a perfect fit. I checked the wire photo to reattach the leads . Before tightening the cover in place, I checked the latch for fit to its mating part on the machine. Then I replaced the screws, made them tight using a portable drill with a clutch. Turned on the power and the repair was complete. Very quick, simple and I saved a bunch of money. Thanks!
