Honda HRT 216SDA How to replace left handle bracket

DutchmanBoyerOctober 15, 2011

I need to replace the left handle backet on my Honda HRT216SDA mower. Do I need to remove the entire drive system to get the 3 bolts that attach this bracket to the mower deck? The 3 bolts are inaccessible since they are behind the drive unit. Only other option may be to remove the grass shoot plate rear discharge to access these bolts.

Yes remove the sheet metal grass chute. You should be able to reach in and get to the nuts,

I got the left bracket installed. Yes. I did need to remove the rear grass chute. It took me and my mechnically inclined neighbor nearly 1.5 hours to remove the plate which required removing one wheel and gear drive assembly to remove the chute plate. Mower is ready for action now. Thanks for your help and for Mr. Fixit next door. I
