Tools:  Phillips head screwdriver

1.  Remove sidewalls, then reposition controller and shroud.

B.  Feed controller back in place through well in shroud

C.  To position sidewalls, grab the handles and pull slightly apart, then drop them around the unit and onto the post of the middle screw in the front base of the unit.
