The blade will be stuck on the shaft and both will be damaged and require replacement. With that knowledge you now understand that drilling a hole sideways through the blade cap isn't wrecking anything you are going to use again. You can then get something into the hole for leverage. Here in NZ blades are under $20 and motor shaft sleeve is about $5.
Your black plastic blades, which are on the bottom of the black blade attachment, that interlock with the blades on the base of the machine may be worn down. When the bullet is turned on and these are not interlocked properly they rub on each other causing the interlocking part to wear down so it no longer catches to turn the blades. As far as I know the only solution for this is to get a replacement part.
Any of the disc blades require the use of the detachable stem. The official "Fine Grating Disc" (which doesn't normally come supplied with the food processor) is mainly for grating cheese, but the shredder disc that comes supplied with the food processor will do the job for you.
The DLC-8 blades and the DLC-7 blades are not compatible. To attach the stem, first attach the stem to one of the compatible blades - the stem should day "DLC-7" for the DLC-7 blades - by inserting the first two tabs of the stem into the first two ridges of the blade connector - the left-most tab should be sticking out past the end of the blade connector - then slide the stem into place so that all tabs fit securely into the blade connector. Next, place the end with the blade up and insert the stem into the middle of the workbowl. There is a video for all Cuisinart food processors on the Cuisinart website.
Our blade just came apart at the seam just above the blade, so we know what's inside. There is a small v-shaped piece of spring wire that is spread apart from the stem that is mounted to the machine. When the button is depressed (it's on a tiny spring, like a mattress spring, and that's what makes it bouncy), it spreads the v-spring wire and releases it. If you can get the seam apart, it will release the v wire and not damage the machine. Replacement blades are available on-line for $13.95, and whole machines are available on e-bay. Good luck.
