Unless you were misusing the trimmer it is under warranty... if you are the original owner there is a lifetime warranty on drive shafts and cables

Ref: Stihl FS46 string trimmer. Broken Flex shaft.


Remove orange sheild,remove single screw holding head in shaft then grab head with pliers and twist side to side until complete head is free.You should then be able to grab part of shaft.On power head loosen screws {about one turn each} that hold two white case halves near trigger,I think there are four,then there is a single torx screw on the bottom of lower case half in the middle that must be taken out to allow tube to be removed.Romove flexshaft from top.Check 4 plastic burnt to flexshaft,if there is you must replace tube liner as well,usally around bent part of tube the liner will go bad.

Stihl FS45 2 cycle string trimmer. Bought in 5/06 Cutting head came off while cutting. Flexible shaft still has squared off end so it doesn't seem to be broken. What holds the cutting head shaft with the...


Dealer says shaft has broken. Stihl had a problem with some FS45's doing this. They are trying to have it repaired under warranty.

Thanks for the response.
