The black cover on the front of the mower is held on by 2 screws from underneth, remove the cover and that will give you acess to where the cable connects to.then you can use a pair of pliers to squeeze the end of the cable to disconnect it from it's mounting hole.

    The first cover screw (or bolt - 5/8") is easy to locate. If you're like me and you never wash the underside of your mower, you'll swear there isn't a 2nd bolt but there is. It's located on the edge of the circle that the blade rotates in. If you run your finger along that circular edge, you'll feel a bump and that's the bolt head, but it's undoubtedly caked with old grass, so you'll have to peel that off to really see that it's a bolt head. I found that this part is the most difficult of the entire job.

6.5. Mark the bracket to the frame as demonstrated in figure 5.2

6.6. Detach the z-fitting end of the cable from the engagement handle.

NOTE: The cable routes down to the cable guide pulley that is mounted on the drive cable adjustment bracket.

6.7. Remove the bottom access panel.

6.8. Detach the spring end from the friction wheel support bracket.

6.9. Examine the removed cable: If the cable failed because of something other than normal wear, identify and correct the cause before returning the snow thrower to service.

Change belt on snapper 722 snow blower


1. Remove the belt cover with a socket wrench. Slide the belt cover off and set it aside.
2. Remove the two belt cover stud bolts with a socket wrench to get to the auger belt guide. 3. Remove the belt guide with a socket wrench.
4. Push down on the belt tensioner pulley with your hand. Remove the old belt and set it aside.
5. Install the new belt and release the belt tensioner pulley to tighten the belt.
6. Re-install the belt guide with a socket wrench and tighten the bolt.
7. Re-install the two belt cover stud bolts and tighten with a socket wrench.
8. Re-install the belt cover and secure it with the cover bolts. Tighten the bolts with a socket wrench.

I pulled the following from a snaper model similar to yours.
The snowthrower has two drive belts, one for the traction
drive-which transmits engine power to the wheels, and
a second for the auger drive-which transmits engine
power to the auger mechanism.
Each of these drive belts are of special construction and
should be replaced only with genuine replacement belts
which match the original equipment belts. These are
available from your dealer.
Traction Drive Belt Replacement
I pulled the following from a snapper model similar to yours. Believe it should help.

1. Disconnect spark plug wire and fasten it away from
the spark plug.
2. Remove belt cover. (Located in back of the discharge shute).
3. Pull the traction drive belt idler pulley arm (See
Figure 24) away from the belt to relieve tension, and
slide the belt off the engine pulley.
4. Slip the belt off from around the traction pulley (See
Figure 29) and pull the belt out of the unit between
the auger pulley and the traction pulley (the lower
cover need not be removed for this step).
5. Reverse the procedure to install the new belt. Be
sure there are no twists in the belt, and that the belt is
properly seated in the pulley grooves.
6. Replace the belt cover.
7. Start the unit, and check the traction drive for proper
operation. See "Traction Clutch Cable Adjustment"
for adjustment procedures.

There are also several videos on YouTube on changing snowthrowr belts. (Didn't see one for your blower, but most similar and should provide a good starting reference).

How do you replace a drive cable on a toro recycler 6.5 hp.


Its a bit of a pain - but with ordinary tools, it can be done. Get the replacement cable first. You can see how the bottom spring wraps around the cable with a universal joint sort of arrangement. Remove the belt protector (three screws from the top deck; if you have a battery compartment, that will temporarily need to go. Release the old cable from the top and middle attachment points, then unhook the spring from the traction lever. You might need to destroy the old cable lock to the mower deck to remove the old cable. Remove the plastic cup next to the cable where it exits the mower deck. Replace parts in this order: New spring/cable to the traction lever, snap in plastic interface to mower deck, small plastic cup top cable attachment, then middle attachment. You might need to move the middle attachment after you give it a test run. Replace belt cover and battery compartment if necessary. A lot of steps but, except for a difficult fit to get the spring hooked up, nothing is really difficult. I paid about $30 for the replacement cable from a local dealer; Overpriced, but I wanted to get the job done today.

How to change a wheel speed sensor on a 2002 chevy silverado


Removal & Installation
Front
To Remove:


  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the wheel assembly.
  3. Remove the brake rotor.
  4. Remove the Wheel Speed Sensor (WSS) cable clip from the knuckle.






    chevy_aval15_02-04_speedsensorharness.gif



  5. Remove the WSS cable clip from the upper control arm.
  6. Remove the WSS cable clip from the frame.
  7. Remove the WSS cable electrical connector.
  8. Remove the WSS mounting bolt.
    CAUTION
    Carefully remove the sensor by pulling it
    straight out of the bore. DO NOT use a screwdriver, or other device to pry the
    sensor out of the bore. Prying will cause the sensor body to break off in the
    bore.

  9. Remove the WSS from the hub/bearing assembly.

To Install:


  1. Seal the WSS bore to prevent dirt or debris from falling into the hub.
  2. Clean the mounting surface on the hub to remove any rust or corrosion.
  3. Apply wheel bearing lubricant, GM P/N 01051344 or equivalent to the hub
    surface and the sensor O-ring to ease sensor installation.
  4. Install the WSS into the hub/bearing assembly.
  5. WSS sensor must be seated flat against the hub.
  6. Install the WSS mounting bolt.

    • Tighten to 13 ft lbs (18 Nm).

  7. Install the WSS cable mounting clips.
  8. Connect the WSS cable electrical connector.
  9. Install the brake rotor.
  10. Install the wheel and tire assembly.
  11. Perform a low speed test for proper operation:

    • Start the engine and allow it to idle.
    • Verify the ABS indicator or the traction assist indicator remains
      illuminated.
    • If the ABS indicator or the traction assist indicator remains illuminated,
      DO NOT proceed to drive the vehicle until it is diagnosed and repaired. Check
      the wheel speed sensor electrical connector to ensure it is not damaged and is
      installed properly. If the lamp remains illuminated, diagnostics are required.
    • Select a smooth, dry, clean, and level road or large lot that is as free of
      traffic and obstacles as possible.
    • Drive the vehicle and maintain a speed of at least 16 km/h (10 mph) for at
      least 5 seconds.
    • Stop the vehicle and check to see if the ABS indicator or the traction
      assist indicator is illuminated.
    • If an indicator is illuminated, diagnostics are required.

Rear
The powertrain control module (PCM) uses the transmission mounted vehicle
speed sensor (VSS) for rear wheel speed input signals. The PCM then sends this
information to the EBCM to use for ABS control.

I've got a 1999 Caddy Deville throwing a 0741 code and showing "Serv Traction Control" and ABS lights on on the dash. If I'm on a steep incline on dry pavement the traction control tends to come on when...


No you don't need any transmission work, the parts you listed are part of that. You either have a bad wheel speed sensor or more likey a bad connection at one of the sensors. Sometimes the cables get damaged. The cables are supposed to remain flexible but sometimes the wires inside break. These cables go from the wheel speed sensors and feed information to the ABS system.
