how do i remove my snow shute?

I want to try to install a impeller kit on my 20 inch Ariens. I need to remove the chute to have access to install the kit. Do i just remove all those small screws, or is it something else i am missing? thank you.

If it is like the slightly bigger Ariens of that era there will be 6 screws on the gear ring around the chute. There are 3 clips under the chute and each one of them is held on by 2 screws. You just have to remove 2 of the clips and then you can slide the chute sideways a bit and it will lift right off.

Bump here guys. Need to transport my new blower into my Audi wagon. The chute is too tall to fit.

How do I remove it. It's a 2006 Ariens 724 932046 I believe. Dont have it in my hands yet but pick it up tomorrow and want to have the necessary tools with me.

Are the screws literally philipps heads or nuts and bolts

You can find the parts manual for your machine here:
http://apache.ariens.com/manuals/00586600A.pdf

If you need to show up and be able to take it apart, I would bring, at a minimum:
- Philips & flathead screwdrivers, different sizes
- socket set & ratchet, metric & English
- adjustable wrench(es)
- pliers (regular and needle-nose)

You don't want to make assumptions, and not have the tool you need.

Thanks guys. The chute is a series of 9/16 and two other tiny bolts on top of the gear cover. Took about 15 mins to lower the handles and remove the cute which literally slips off the collar
