walk me thru GDO gear replacement

sam_chicagoDecember 15, 2007

my Craftsman GDO plastic gear is shredded, could you walk me thru the replacement? Do I have to remove the entire shaft with the bad gear attached or can I remove the bad gear by itself? What drive head is on those two little screws?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Detailed instructions come with the parts kit from Sears.
You remove the shaft, replace two gears and reinstall along with some other included hardware.
