My Repair & Advice
After removing the kick plate, I pulled the d/w out enough to see the spring on each side. I then disconnected the linkage on each side, replaced the pulley on each side, attached the linkage on each side, and pushed the d/w back in. Finally, I reattached the kick plate.
Because we have granite counters, the screws holding the d/w in place were on the sides of the adjacent cabinet. Since I don't have a magnetized screwdriver, I improvised one to avoid dropping the screws when trying to reinstall them.
