To replace your John Deere 345 Voltage Regulater, you must first remove the throttle and choke plastic levers. You can do this by pulling them straight up. Once you’ve removed them, lift the center console about two inches and thread the VR out. Unplug the wiring harness and connect the new unit to the battery using the reversed instructions. Then, use a 10mm wrench to thread the VR out from the battery tray.
