I found a video that showed how to take the wheels and axles off. After that it was easy - for me using gloves helped on the axles. I am not a DIY but since I previously used the repair kit on the rusted spots 2x in the past 6 years decided it was time to replace. Axles went on the new rack easier after I soaked them in hot water. Wheels popped right on. Then I discovered my silverware basket didn't fit. After scouring the internet to see which style would fit, I studied the location in the front of the rack and found that only one prong was preventing the basket from sliding in. I bent that one prong forward enough to allow the old basket to slide into the same location in the front of the new rack. I did notice that the new rack is quite a bit lighter than the old rack - that is what probably made it easier to bend the prong so I could get the old basket in.
