SOURCE: Ryobi 105r replacement line
Look at the top of the spool. Line up the two triangles/arrows by turning the inner wheel The inner wheel is a little smaller that the diameter of the spool and has grip lines scored around it. Just below those arrows, on the side of the spool there is a hole where the line would come out of. Thread the line into that hole until it comes out through a hole on the top of the spool. Then bend the end of that line over and stick it in the little hole next to the hole it came through. That will lock it in place. Pull on the other end of the line to tighten it. Now turn that inner wheel and the line will wrap around on the inside of the spool. When it stops and you can't turn it anymore, it's full. Cut the line off about 10 inches or so outside of the spool.

Or sometimes you unscrew a retaining bolt set into a plastic "lug", the spool drops out, refill t with line, replace it putting line through holes in the spool casing, refit the "lug" and tighten it again. I think I have the manual for this though and if so maybe I can send you a link to images on MSN Homepage to help you..

The lower flex shaft should cost around $40, unless you order it online and have to pay shipping. You should be able to get one from your local MTD dealer. (Ryobi is owned by MTD)

There is a nut above the head, place a wrench on the nut then unscrew the head from the shaft, unless yours is different from mine this is how it works. I hope this helps.

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.
