If this is a rounded cover you need to use a flat blade screwdriver. Make sure the screw is out on the lt side, then insert the screwdriver on the rt side where you see the tab/slot. gently press the screwdriver to the rt to pry the cover out. The chopper will come out easily, going back in is tricky. Use a 1/2 inch open end wrench, compress the spring and insert the wrench between the blade and the screen, then put the chopper back in.

The leak is coming from the main seal? The chopper thingy on these old machines will not come out without a fight. These impellers have been there a long time and has had lots of hard water and crud to hold them on. Get a screwdriver or a reasonable facsimile and carefully bust it off. Be careful not to damage the shaft. If you pull the whole motor assembly out, replace the rubber gasket too.

Hold the lower spray arm hub (plastic bolt spray arm connects to) and turn the lower spray arm counter clockwise to remove it.
Using a torx bit, remove the 4 screws and the top cover. Remove the screws for the lower cover and the chopper cover. Insert a flat screwdriver it into the clip of the chopper cover to pull it up easier.
Unless there are alot of "foreign objects" in that area, be prepared to replace the chopper, the motor and/or sump assembly.

you can replac the chopper as a seperate part, but will quickly clog, and destry ohter parts of the unit if removed. dont take this the wrong way but if you have a garbage disposer already rinse the dishes better to avaid further clogging of chopper
