1. Unplug the saw.
2. Locate the blade lock button used to lock the motor shaft when changing a blade. For your saw, this button is usually located on the left side of the blade guard somewhere around the motor housing.
3. Push the button while rotating the blade until the button engages and the blade will no longer turn.
4. Use the wrench that came with the saw (or another wrench) to loosen and remove the blade bolt. For your saw the bolt should have standard right hand threads which means you loosen the bolt by turning it counter clock-wise.
5. Remove the old blade and replace it with a new blade of the same mounting type. Some blades have a round through hole and some blades have a diamond through hole.
6. Re-install the blade bolt and tighten clock-wise while holding the blade lock button down.

05 maxima put in reverse backed up pulled it forward went to back up acts like it wants to go but slips real bad


torque converter solenoid requires replacement. Look it up on Youtube for detailed replacement... it's not difficult, just be clean and have both a new think blade paint spatula and safety razor blade handy to scrape away the old gasket once you remove the old part. Use Simple Green to clean up the area all around it before you remove the old part... cleanliness is the key to prevent dirt and any old gasket remnants from ruining the new part your about to install.

How to change a blade on dw305 dewalt recirocating saw


On the DW305 you need an allen wrench to remove the blade. Some tools have one somewhere on the handle, if not find one to fit in the blade clamp hex-head bolt. Loosen the bolt and the old blade should come out easily. When you put the new blade in make sure the pin inside catches the hole in the blade.

I think that I over tightened the lock nut on one side (not using a tort wrench) after changing the mowing blades. I don't think it is cutting now. When I take the blades off from cutting, one blade...


there is a star shaped, or other, pattern on the bottom of the mandrel which fixes it into the blade. this has stripped so the blade is freewheeling on the mandrel. if you cannot remove the blade bolt, I think you are going to have to remove the deck and take it to a fabrication or machine shop to have them remove the blade from the mandrel. then you buy a new mandrel and a new blade, at a small engine repair shop, put it back together. take a picture of the top of the deck before you remove the deck belt so you know how to put it back on after you have the new mandrel bolted in. if it is old you may just want to replace all the mandrels while you are at it. they are less than 50 bucks each.

How do I remove the old blade and put new one on without breaking the thing


You do not give any inofrmation on your machine, but the normal method is to remove the blade adjustment mechanism and then the blade guide will come out and the chain can be removed over the drive sprocket and the guide. Take ote of the order in which the parts come apart and also the direction the chain fits. If this is a petrol machine, remove the spark plug lead before attempting any work on the blade and if it is electric, ensure that the power cord is removed from the supply socket.

I can get the old wiper blades off my 2008 avalon but don't know how to put on new ones. do you have to remove something from old blade?


Hello,
  1. After you have removed the old wiper blade make sure to remove any adapter left behind on the actual wiper arm as the new blade should come with a multi use adapter.
  2. It should just be a bare metal rounded hook bar now.
  3. Now if there is not adapter on the new wiper blade then put the one provided on. Often times the wiper blade comes with this adapter already on the wiper blade.
  4. Pull the wiper arm out a bit and set the new blade under the open section of the wiper arm.
  5. That adapter will have a little play to it.
  6. Push it up a bit so it fits in the slot on the wiper arm and pull up on the wiper blade and the blade should "click" into place.
Do the same for the other side and your good to go. I also recommend Raine X for your windshield. My experience as a mechanic and a storm chaser has proven Rain X to be invaluable in severe weather.
Regards, Tony
