Step 3: Insert the New Protective Window

  • Insert the replacement Protective Window by aligning the tab of the Protective Window to the rectangular opening of the metal bearing and gently insert into place.
  • The tab of the Protective Window should snap into the rectangular opening.

Step 4: Wrapping Up
