It is reverse threaded so you have to turn it like you was tightening it to loosen it. Clockwise looking at it from the bottom of the head. But there is a clutch that will let the whole thing turne. The best way is to remove the shaft from the weedeater and hold the shaft with some vice grips. Or you may be able to hold it right above the head, before the shaft tube.

We're having trouble with our just-purchased Husqvarna 128CD trimmer - the tap head doesn't seem to work properly. When I tap the head, the line doesn't extend. On first use, the line became...

It is a fairly simple head, push the two ears in either side of the head, the black base will then come off, check the cord inside has not become trapped, check the blue button depresses ok, re assemble, run the machine at full revs and bump it down on the grass.

Headlights don't work on 99 beetle please help

The bulbs burn out often, being as they are on all the time . You have to pull each head lamp assembly out of the housing in the fender to access the bulb.

You cannot change the bulb as you would on other vehicles. This job is a little difficult for the first time but fortunately there are some good tutorials on line you can read. Google'' for more info.

Check your fuses first. There are fuses in the end of the dash and you pry off the plastic cover with a small flat blade screwdriver. Panel is not accessible with the doors closed.

The Beetle also likes to burn the fuses in the battery area. There are 30amp 'Green' fuses in a plastic housing above the battery under the hood. Check to see they have not burnt out in their holders.

Look inside the engine compartment at the headlamp side you are needing to replace.
You will see a 1.5" plastic lever extending from headlight assembly.

To remove headlight, push the small black button (is about 1/4" x 1/2" and has cross-hatched stamp in metal) until you can move the lever from the down position to the full up position.

The headlight assembly should release a few centimeters. You should then be able to grab a hold of the headlight assembly and gently twist back and forth until the headlight releases and comes out.

Final step is to unhook the electrical wires by simply pulling the cap from the connection.

Remove black cover from assembly and replace bulb.

When you push the assembly back into the housing you need to make sure the electrical captive socket goes home in to the head lamp fully.

The last fraction of an inch will need a firm push on the lens to get it home.

I hope this helps you.

Do not know how to correctly string so string will come out as it is supposed to on my poulan pro weedeater, do not have directions

There are five ways to change trimmer line depending upon the style of trimmer head on your unit.

The first style has a locking tab on the side of the trimmer head that must be depressed while the lock ring is turned counter-clockwise. This will remove the cover and give access to the spool which can then be pulled out, rewound with the line (winding in the direction of the arrows on the spool), and re-installed.

The second style requires lining up the marks on the bottom of the spool tap/button assembly and firmly pulling straight out on the tap button. This pulls the spool assembly out so it can be re-wound and inserted back into the hub assembly.

The third style requires pushing in and down on the two locking tabs on the side of the trimmer head. This will remove the cover and give you access to the spool.

The fourth style of trimmer head is the Centrex. Remove the cap on the bottom of the head by unscrewing it. Remove the guide ring and remove the spool from the unit. Cut a 25ft length of line and insert one end into the center cavity of the empty spool. Feed the line into the spool, leaving 4-6 inches unwound from the center of the spool. Reinstall the spool, guide and cap, making sure the notch in the guide is facing away from the spool and the line is in the notch.

The fifth style is the fixed line cutting head. This style cutting head uses a pre-cut piece of cutting line. After removing the worn line from the cutting head, insert the precut piece into the positioning tunnel leaving an equal amount out each side of the tunnel. The ends of the line can then be inserted through the exit tunnels.

Cannot remove tail light assembly

I had the HARDEST time with the lights...I never realized changing a bulb would be so difficult. Once you unscrew what you need to, go into the trunk and pull the lining away from the back part of the light. There are the white prongs that you will need to tap with a hammer until they pop out and then the light assembly will come out. Be careful though, I got a little too impatient and broke mine. I used a binding agent to hold it back in place though...GOOD LUCK!
