Hello. Here is the link to the Parts Breakdown of your unit. It should show what you need to know to reassemble the spring on your saw. If not, use the contact information to speak to customer service and they should be able to assist. Hope this helps, Thank You.

B & D #3051 worm drive saw: How do I access the return spring for blade guard?


Link,
Usually you will have to remove the blade guard to get access to that. There is usually a rubber stop with a screw going through it that you will have to remove, and a spiral spring clip on the inside of the hub of the blade guard that will also have to be removed and then you should be able to lift the blade guard off the saw. The spring will hook around the blade guard and the other end will hook to the saw housing. Hope this helps!

When replacing blade spring for the safety cover fell out. Not surewhere it came from.


On most brands of circ saws, there will be a lug/tab on the back of the lower blade guard and also a hole or screw point on the upper inside of the main/fixed guard. The spring should have a hook at either end that will go on these fixing points.

What is the spring for in the 2000w makita circular saw


Other than carbon brush springs, the only other spring that I know of on a circular saw is for the blade guard so that it will automatically return to cover the blade after you make the cut. There should be a hook or a bend in each end of the spring and each end has a certain spot where it hooks so that it pulls the blade guard back in place.

Replacing the blade guard spring


there is a hold in the lower guard for the loop and the other end wraps around the guard slightly and there is a hole in the back of the upper guard. You can go to Milwaukeetool.com and download a breakdown for the tool Also when you have the blade off I would try using compressed air to clean the area and spray some lubricant on the hub to lubricate. The guard should "snap" back when done sawing. Let me know if you need more help

I took the guard off the 10" Makita Mitre saw (spring loaded)!


Oh, you got it off. I bet you can put it back on again.
It's much easier if you take the blade off first. Then you'll be able to reach inside when you need to. Be patient, don't force it, and make sure when you get the spring reconnected properly that the guard moves freely out of the way when you chop, and returns when you raise the saw back up.
It's a bit of a trick, but I bet you can manage it..It's been awhile, but it seems to me there's a way to get the bolt started before you engage the tension on the spring...I'd have to have it in my hands to say exactly.
Here's a link to the exploded parts view at the Makita site, just in case. And it might help to have an extra pair of hands, or a piece of duct tape to hold the guard in place when you go to put the blade back on.
