Reinstall Right Upper Arm Front Cover

Position the right upper arm front cover in its original location. You will need to rotate it back into place in the reverse of the way it was removed.

Reinstall the five (5) mounting screws to hold the cover in place. It is important to leave them just loose enough that the cover can still move, but make sure that the screws are in far enough that they will not catch the needlecase as it moves over them. The screws will be fully tightened in a future step.

Important: Ensure that the button head screw is installed in the
lower left side location of the cover as shown in the image.
