Okay, so if I understand you correctly you have the two parts of the machine split. You have removed the belts from the engine to the auger pulley on the rear of the auger housing.

You will need to remove the pulley on the rear of the housing. Remove the bolts on either side of the auger in the front of the unit and then slide the auger assembly out of the housing. Then you will be able to access the impeller in order to remove it from the main shaft and replace it.

I am including a couple of diagrams that may help you with disassembly and reassembly of the auger housing with this comment.

I hope that this information is helpful to you. Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.
