We're ready to take the back apart now and we just gonna do pretty much what we did with the front. Now as I told you before, this chair has already been disassembled so it's gonna come apart pretty easy. Your's will probably be a little bit harder, but don't worry, just keep working at it. When we get up here, this whole assembly here is one unit and that's probably going to come out in pieces, so don't be afraid, just let it fall apart. There you go, now this one didn't fall apart on us so that's good. So here we have the back end taken apart. Put all your parts together and line them up over here. Do the same thing that we did to the back to the front. Usually what I've found is that holding it here and striking right in the center will get the chair apart pretty easy. There we have the chair disassembled now and we're ready to start reassembling it and we're going to begin by cleaning all the parts.
