There are 2 types of clamps that hold the blade in that type of saw.
Since this is an older one it most likely has the type where the blade is held in place with a set screw and a "U" shaped piece of metal that holds the blade tight against the shaft. There should be a screw hole in the shaft of the saw. The blade rest next to the shaft and then the metal piece clamps the blade against the shaft. This is all held in place by a set screw that screws into the shaft. This screw uses a hex key to remove and tighten it.
If your tool doesn't have this style then it should have a twisting clamp. This will rotate and release the blade. Sometimes a pliers is needed to loosen the collar, but not to tight tho.

Hi again Guy, It is easy to overlook the obvious, I do it a lot. There are two allen screws in the rubber boot at the front bottom that need to be removed to release the foot (or shoe), which should slide out the end. Then the whole boot ( forward hand grip) pulls off the end exposing the assembly you need to replace. Good Luck to you, this should Fixya!
