Kenmore/Sears Progressive 116 How to get housing off to replace cord

\015 Hi there,\015\012I was wondering if anyone can help me. I would like to replace the cord assembly on my progressive 116. When I took to Vac store it was going to cost about $80.00 to fix and I think that if I could get into the thing I could replace it myself. Can someone please advise how to open the housing? I only see two screws and they are inside near the bag. I have unscrewed those, but it is still attached somehow. Can someone please help me?\015

Answers :

There are four screws, two at the front and two at the back under the step bar that rewinds the cord.  It lifts off from the bottom.  Be careful not to snap off the tabs.
I have 116 have 3 screws 2 upfront one in the back put the vacuum on it back and push the top part with the handle backward and the housing forward . so easy
