The lever used to release the clamp that holds the sandpaper has broken. It seems to be part of the pad assembly. How do I remove the pad to replace it? Is this older model worth buying a new pad?
Thanks, Bill Lees

Re: pad on 9045B sander
Remove the bottom faom pad, which should just be held on with phillips screws. Under this you will see the eccentric weight that has a screw in the middle. Not sure if it is left hand thread or not so be carefull. It is normally thread locked aswell so be firm but fair when unscrewing it. Once it's out you should be able to lever the weight of by applying equal pressure to each side of it. It will be centered on a woodruff key so be cartefull not to lose it. Also, in between this part of the base and the main body of the machine there is a rubber skirt that is clamped to both parts. Unscrew the band clamping the skirt to the base and I think you should be able to pry it apart then.

looked at breakdown for the 9035 and this shows as a half sheet sander with 2 clips, they have a lever that has to be pulled away from the sander to allow you to lift up on the clamp and insert the paper under the clamp jaws when finished inserting the paper just push the levers back to their original position. You can download an owners manual by going to makitausa.com and typing in your model number. Let me know if you need more assistance.
Look between the rollers that the sandpaper belt travel on. You will find a lever which can be released. Once you release it, you can pull the old belt off and slip the new belt on. Place the release lever back the way it was and you are done.
It depends on what kind of sander it is. If its a belt sander then on the side there is a lever that comes outward. it releases the tension then slip the old one off and new on and push lever back in place. If its a palm sander then on each side of the pad there will be 2 silver rods there. you push the rod in and then pull up and it releases a bar that wil go up and down for you to put the new paper on with.
At both ends of the bottom pad, there are metal fittings that have a
rectangular hole in the middle of them. Take a regular head screwdriver
and put the tip in the hole and carefully but firmly lift up and hold
while at the same time pushing the narrow edge of the 1/3 sheet
sandpaper up under the metal piece which kind of looks like a C on its
edge. Then let down the metal piece with the screwdriver and that edge
of the sand paper should be held in place. Do the same thing for the
other end of the sandpaper, making sure to pull the sandpaper sheet
tight against the rubber pad.
there might be a buildup of sawdust in the tensioning mechanism or the yoke might be bent. I would look at excess buildup in the mechanism first. there are 3 screws on the outside of the tool so you can remove the assembly as a whole. try and clean as thoroughly as possible. the mechanism should move freely and "snap" when lever released.
This is generaly due to previous adhesive buildup on the backing pad OR, the face of the backing pad is breaking down and cracking.There are two ways to handle this. You can try scrubing the crud off the pad (I wouldn't) or, you can get a new backing pad for your sander. At this point, you might want to go with a velcro type pad or hook and loop as they call it (cleaner and no goop). Check your local home depot for pads. If you cannot find one, I would suggest you call Klingspor abrasives Co. They have area reps all over the United States. I know, as I used to be one of them.They carry,.. and will send you pads via UPS. Just make sure you don't try to put a 6in pad on a 5in sander or vice-versa as the pads are weight-mated to the sanders. If you do, you will burn up the motor in your sander rather quickly.
Ok on the front and rear of the sander you will see metal wire holders. These extend each side of the sander and form a loop to which you can release them from their holder. Release each side ring and then that will lift the wire holders up at the front and back of the sander. This releases the sandpaper sheet. Now cut or add a new sheet that is long enough to fit over the sander base and fold up under the wire holders. Then clip the rings from the wire holder back in place while holding the sandpaper under the wire holder to hold the sandpaper in... same process for each holder (one front and back). That's it!
