Step 1:

Take your screwdriver and begin unscrewing the housing assembly around your tool. Make sure your tool isn’t turned on. Remember, safety first.

Note: Make sure you study your tool’s component layout before you disassemble your tool further.

Step 2:

Next, use your pliers to disconnect the black and white (or hot or common). You can also disconnect the terminals if you need to replace those too.

Now, remove the boot that protects the cord to reuse it later.

Now, using your pliers connect the black and white connectors to the tool. Make sure they are connected to the right terminals.

Step 4:

Now, let’s go ahead and begin reassembly.

Take the cord and insert the cord into the cord clamp.
