There is a plastic guard around the edges that comes off. Then, there are clamps that hold each end of the sandpaper. If you can't see the clips, then the guard is still on and needs to be removed. Hope this helps...

SOURCE: pad on 9045B sander
Remove the bottom faom pad, which should just be held on with phillips screws. Under this you will see the eccentric weight that has a screw in the middle. Not sure if it is left hand thread or not so be carefull. It is normally thread locked aswell so be firm but fair when unscrewing it. Once it's out you should be able to lever the weight of by applying equal pressure to each side of it. It will be centered on a woodruff key so be cartefull not to lose it. Also, in between this part of the base and the main body of the machine there is a rubber skirt that is clamped to both parts. Unscrew the band clamping the skirt to the base and I think you should be able to pry it apart then.

Thought about what my orbital sander is like, then went to a craft store and bought a large sheet/pad of velcro and cut it to fit the 6" rubber disc pad glued it to the pad and then bought hook and loop sanding discs. And you wondering why I didn't use my orbital sander?? Because I needed to get into tight spaces and the orbital sander is a bit too large for this, plus it's too heavy to use working overhead .
Thanks for your site and for asking if problem still exists. Appreciate it.

I believe this is a "throw away" tool :o( if not, there'll be a screw-type "door" in the chassis of the grinder...get the brushes out and try your local ACE or TruValue hdwe.
