It is always a good idea to take pictures of each removal step to make reassembly easier. Remove cover on the pull rope housing. Locate the flywheel which the pull cord wraps around. Remove screws or bolts that attach flywheel on the housing unit. Caution, be careful on recoil spring position. Locate hole on flywheel (side view) in which the original cord was feed through. Feed replacement into hole and tie a single knot. Reattach assembly.
