Sometimes that's not an easy job . I work for a Husqvarna dealer and I have that problem frequently . First try to get the clutch cover on place (do not use the bolts) and push in @ the top part of the clutch cover , then try to move the clutch lever backwards to release the band (better if done with two people) . If that does not work the only way is remove the clutch lever with the 2 bolts on each side and put the lever on the clutch cover (top metal piece that looks like a clover)to release the band (again with 2 people one holds the clutch cover and the other one the lever pulling the lever backwards) .
Hope this help

SOURCE: Have husq 445 removed clutch
Use a heavy, wide blade, square-shanked screwdriver to turn the coupling in the cover to 'release'. You may need an open end wrench on the screwdriver shaft to get enough torque to turn the brake coupling. Hope this helps!

You need to load the brake, clamp it in a vice, be carefull not to damage the cover, if the hand gaurd is connected to the brake pull it fully back until the locks off, this may take a fair amount of force as it is compressing a large spring, if the hand guard is on the machine, remove it and use this as a tool to load the brake, the only other way is to remoce the clutch and sprocket, now refit the brake onto the saw, now pull the hand guard fully back to load the brake.

Hi, the chain brake has most likely been activated while removing the cover. Place the cover in a vise where the bar nuts tighten up to and pull the chain brake lever backwards towards where the handle bar would be. It should click back and stay back. Hope this helps, regards Phil.
