How do I install my new timer switch??

I'm trying to wire a timer switch for my bathroom fan, but I need to share some pics to explain it.

Here is my existing timer that I want to remove:

As you can see all the white and ground wires are together in the box.

I'm trying to read the instructions:

Can someone tell me how to hook this up? It's single pole.

The constant hot goes to black, the switched hot goes to red. The white tail splices to the white bundle.

Welcome to the forums.

Nice pictures.

The wiring is as follows....
Connect the black timer wire to the two black wire splice with the yellow wire nut.
Connect the red timer wire to the single black wire.
Connect the white timer wire to the three white wires in a splice with wire not.
Connect the green timer wire to the bare ground wire.
Cap off the yellow/red wire.
