  1. If you need to make this repair this video will show you exactly how to do it. It's a simple repair but it's the type of job that I sometimes get frustrated fidgeting with until everything connects. I may have had just as easy a time if I had not watched the video, but I think it helped me. The procedure took just a bit longer than I spent getting the parts box open.

  2. On the far right hand side of the traction control handle there is a spring. Mine appears to be broken and hanging loose; the right side of the spring (where it goes straight again) appears to be snapped off. What does this spring do, what is it called and how do i replace it?

  3. This is the handle return spring that keeps the handle from hanging loose and returns it to the same position each time it is released. We do not have a video on this at this time. You will need to remove the end of the handle that the spring is on and slide off the old one and replace it with the new one. Use your model number to make sure you get the right spring.

  4. If you enter your model number into a Google search you can typically find a diagram of your model. This would be helpful in seeing how everything goes together.

  8. I ordered the wheel guard from you.  The problem is that the old one cannot be simply pulled out of the axle as easily as depicted in your video.  the opening is simply too small.  I must remove the gear on the axle to get it off.  

  9. getting the spring back on was no where as easy on my Model#20017! But good DYI video just the same. Thanks, I'm a die hard Toro man for 35 years!

  10. HI I'm trying to figure out how to throttle up my mower. There it no throttle control or cable that i can locate on this Toro model 20076. It starts, The traction cable is connected right thanks to this video assist but being a used mower I am just lost how to get it powered up so I can mow. Can you help?

  11. Thanks, just replaced mine after watching the video. Had to punch out the plastic bracket on the motor housing, tabs were pretty messed up, but that worked like a charm. A couple of taps with a hammer on a screwdriver at the base push it right out. It's a walk behind mower again!
