General Methodology to replace jets.
Step 1 Drain spa 12" below jet.
Step 2 Remove side panel. Remove foam if present. Exposes back of jet and plumbing.
Step 3 ID the airline hose. It will be 1/2". Cut the piping at the point the fitting enters the actual jet housing. In most cases if you do not, you will not be able to slide the nut over it. Do this both for the airline fitting and if this jet assembly has a plug, the plug.
Step 4 Cut the pipe from the water inlet at the point the hose enters the Elbow or T.
Step 5 Cut the Elbow or T off the jet housing. If you have an elbow, this may be optional. If you have a T, the nut will not come off because of the T
Step 6 Remove the nut. Most LARGE channel locks or wrenches will be able to remove the nut IF there is enough work room. It very tight places, you usually can tap a screwdriver at an angle to start the nut turning lefty loosy.
Step 7 Remove the leveling ring if one is present
  Nut and level ring usually can be reused.
Step 8 Push the jet assembly toward the water side. Older models used silicon to seal the housing to the spa shell and its a matter of braking the seal. You can also rock the jet to help break the seal. I have also used the same wrench to grab on the jet housing and rock to break the seal. Once broken, the assembly will fall into the spa.
Step 9 Clean the waterside of the shell well removing any leftover silicone.
Step 10 Run a bead of silicone on the flange of the new housing.
  I use GE's Silicone II in clear for kitchens.
Step 11 Slide the housing through the hole, put the level ring on, and then nut. Make sure housing is upright. Tighten nut to snug ONLY.
Step 12 When you tighten the housing it will spread the silicon and make a seal. You have likely put too much silicon and its now spread out. IMMEDIATELY clean with paper towels. Fresh silicon is fairly easy to clean and buff off. 10 minutes later its curing and turning into a gel and NOW its a mess to clean. So do immediately.
  I also place a paper towel where the nozzle is to catch any glue that might flow out to avoid glue on the water side of the jet or worst, on the spa's shell.
Step 13 Reverse order plumbing pipes to new jet assembly
  Note: Silicon, if you installed dry to dry surface, is water tight almost instantly but wise to let cure. PVC gluing should be allowed to cure 24hrs. So in theory you can fill the spa but do NOT turn the pumps on for 24hrs.
