Second of all we're going to be removing both of the screws that are holding the cover in place. After doing so we will have a breaker that we want to replace. Once doing so you're going to use a screw driver to loosen up the screw that's holding onto the hot wire then after that we're going to pull that wire out, grab onto the circuit breaker pull it out and pry it up, it comes right out of place.
