How do I remove the clutch cover from a Ryobi chainsaw?

There are two nuts that hold the clutch cover and chain bar in place. The same nuts you would loosen to adjust the chain tension. Once those are taken off the cover, bar and chain can be removed.

Clutch removal on a580-531060 craft an chainsaw

Assuming you want to remove the clutch spider, which typically is left-hand threaded onto the crank. Not knowing if it's an internal (chain drive sprocket is "outboard") or external clutch, here goes for both. After removing bar & chain.
Internal: CAREFULLY (so it doesn't fly) remove clip from crank, remove washer, clutch drum, bearing and/or rim sprocket. Remove recoil starter. Using proper tool to fit clutch "spider" and impact wrench, turn it CLOCKWISE with wrench to unthread it.
External: Remove bar & chain and recoil starter. Using tool to fit the clutch "spider" and socket on impact wrench, spin the spider off CLOCKWISE. You can then remove remainder of clutch & bearing.
Be sure to grease the bearing while it's accessible.
Starter removal avoids applying any load if the crank turns.

Chainsaw clutch adjustment

To my knowledge chainsaws do not have an adjustable clutch. They can be replaced. To replace you must keep the piston from moving. I have stuffed some rope into the spark plug hole and then remove the nut holding the clutch in place. Then use a puller to remove the clutch from the shaft. There should be a key in the shaft so watch for it and put it back when you put the clutch back on.

Replace clutch spring

You need to remove the clutch assy from the chainsaw prior trying to replace the spring. Be aware that the clutch assy is no longer available so be careful not to damage it on removal.

How do you change the clutch?

Remove the side casing. (bar side)
Take off bar and chain.
Remove E-clip holding the clutch drum on.
Remove clutch drum and needle cage bearing.
This should expose the clutch.
Remove spark plug.
Use a piston stop to stop the piston rising, Sometimes a knotted piece of pull cord fed into the cylinder is just as good.
Turn the clutch clockwise with a socket to unscrew.

To put clutch back on turn anticlockwise till piston cycles back and hits the piston stop again and tighten. Replace spark plug and clutch drum, bearing, bar and chain and side casing.

Chainsaw clutch removal

All Husqvarna chainsaws have the clutch spun onto the crankshaft with a left hand thread, this makes them self tightening, if there is a nut as part of the clutch centre you can use a socket and speed brace to jat the clutch off against compression, a impact wrench works great for this, if there is no nut there will be a special tool for it, it depends on the model as to which tool you need,
