Question about Garden
How do I replace the pull cord on a ryobi model # ss30 weed trimmer. I have taken the srews out but cannot get to the string area because the housing will not come off.
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.
