How to replace the Chute Arm lock mechanism on 2015 Platinum 921038

Hi, seen previous posts on the cause of the chute not staying in position and walking all over. What I need is a picture or more detailed post on how the new locking arm and spring go in. Users mention the hole that one end of the spring goes in, but not sure what hole they are talking about, and how they get the spring to stay put when trying to reinsert the bearing in it. Here is a decent example, but still not sure where or how to get the spring situated. https://www.diyforums.net/how-to-ins...l#comment-4374. Any pictures or clearer language on where to insert the lower part of the spring would be appreciated. Was able to deal with the 1st 12' of snow this season, but would like control over the chute direction for the next storm.

The earlier years of the 926 series chute locking mechanism appears different to the 921 series. I have heard about the spring end fitting into a hole, but that is not how the 921 series (and current 926 series Pro machines) work.

The attached photos show the way the spring is mounted on my 2015 Platinum 30 SHO 921040 model. The exploded view of the chute locking assembly will help you too. When you have the setup completed you will need to adjust the cable to allow the locking lever to engage with the gear teeth.

Good luck.

Shout out to "Town, the pictures worked, I slid the locking arm on, then held it in place while grabbing the end of the spring at the bottom with a long thin screw driver and pulling it up so its basically at the bottom of the washer where the rotating rod goes thru, then holding it tight, and screwing down the hold own bolt. It takes a few times, but if you can get the spring up to that position, its then just holding the locking arm still while you tighten the final nut. Once the nut is tightened, then adjust the cable to get the tension back. Appreciate the help.
