You need a long skinny T25 torque driver (sold in a pack at Lowe's with 3 other sizes.)
Take off the 4 screws in the back to reveal the piston. Get a wooden dowel (or a wooden spoon if your wife isn't around) and stick it in to the piston to block it from spinning.
Now take that T25 and stick it in to the front pulley (cone shaped silver item that is preventing the housing from coming off) turn to the left and it should come off.
That should come off to reveal about a 1"x1.5" piece with a spring wrapped around it. That can also turn to the left and come off with an adjustable wrench or pliers.
Once that is off the housing should come away and you'll be able to get at the pull cord after removing 4 more T25 screws.

Before you start... transfer the handle assy to the new rope. Remove the old rope and install the new rope just like the old one. Make sure to tie 1 knot in the end of the rope so that the rope ded not pull out of the handle
-Remove the recoil assy.
-Remove the old rope.
-Wind the spool counter clockwise until it stops
-Back up the spool until the rope hole aligns with the rope guide. DO NOT let the spool unwind. It really takes 2 people to do this.
-Burn the end of the new rope with a match and very quickly while it is still soft. pinch the end of the rope to make it as small as possible.
-Thread the new rope through the rope guide and into the hole for the knot of the spool.
-Use a scribe or needle to lift and pull the new rope through the hole
-Tie 1 knot in the rope
-Pull the knot into the hole in the spool
-Let go of the spool and the rope will rewind
-Install recoil assy
-RETURN TO SERVICE

Here's a link to step-by-step and a video for a Ryobi SS30 string trimmer. I do not believe there are many (if any) differences between those instructions and you trimmer.

If your pull cord is still attached to the grab handle, it's likely your spring is still wound. Follow this if this is the case:
1. Disconnect the shaft by removing the small set screw and the clamp - pull the shaft out of the engine body.
2. Remove the recoil assembly (About 5-5 torx bolts).
3. Pull the cord until the stops and use a small piece of wood acting as a wedge to jam between the recoil and the housing.
4. Cut the line and pull the knotted terminating end from the hosing.
5. Keep the wedge tight so it does not spin back. If this happens, you will simply need to rewind the spring back (about five turns) and re-wedge it.
Use proper line and reverse for new line. Good luck!
