    Does NH have a place where you can download the owners manual off their website?

    Lift arms all the way up and engage the lock
    Remove engine side panels
    Remove Seat
    Disconnect parking brake
    Remove front piece of cab you step on when you enter machine it is yellow
    Remove Fenders
    Remove 2 large bolts one on either side of cab
    Get another machine or special jack to support the loader arms
    Remove bolts at rear of cab down by the rear tire

    I tied a chain to the cab where the 2 bolts attached it to the frame then to the tie down loop on the rear of machine make it long enough to let the cab tilt forward but short enough it holds it so you don't rely on the other machine or jack to hold it up.

    I think these are all of the steps I figured it out myself I have only had to do it 2 times on my machine
