On my Ryobi trimmer, all I have to do is unscrew the knob (the device that you "bump" to advance the line) at the bottom of the spool and the spool can be lifted out. I had to use a strap wrench the first time since it was on very tight. You don't have to line up any arrows to remove the reel.

To install string in the Ryobi you do not have to disassemble anything: Line up the two arrows on the inner and outer reel, remove any excess string, cut two
pieces of string about 10 feet, feed line in the side holes, secure
line in hole where it comes out the bottom (it only takes about 1/4in.
to do so), pull strings tight, then turn the inner reel counter clockwise to wind it. If
it sticks a little just pull line a little.
To remove the inner spool in order to remove line that has broken inside, to clean the mechanism, or to perform other maintenance, grasp the outer reel and unscrew the bump knob counter-clockwise. Mine is often very tight and requires pliers to get enough leverage. While you are in there, clean the inner reel and the inside of the outer reel to improve feed performance. The shaft rarely needs cleaning. Do not lubricate. After re-installing the reel, add string (0.080") as described above.

Okay, so the good news is that YOU are probably not stupid. If you have a Ryobi trimmer like I do, it might have taken you a while to figure out the "secret" on how to rewind the line. If you only had to learn the lesson once, you are smarter than I am. (I'm leaving myself a note for next time).
If you wind the line the wrong way, you go through line really fast until it clogs up inside the bump head and you are forced to try again. The trimmer has an arrow on the spool for the direction to re-wind the line. Think of it this way, TURN THE SPOOL IN THE DIRECTION OF THE ARROW! Don't do what I did and rewind the line in the direction of the arrow, that would be wrong.
Whether this is a "mistake", a way to sell more trimmers/parts/line, or simply bad tranlation from Japanese to Engrish, it really doesn't matter. You don't need to buy anything with the exception of new line.

If it brand new take it back to where you bought it, it's probably still under warranty. Why try to fix something you don't need to???
