2.After removing the screws, check if your endstop can be disconnected by pulling from the cable connections. Do not use force when pulling from the cables since earlier versions of the endstops come together with the cable.

If it gets disconnected, you can connect the new one and screw it in place. The next image shows you the terminals and how you should connect it. 

Otherwise, if you have to replace both the endstop and the cable, continue with the step 3.
