There is a plastic guard around the edges that comes off. Then, there are clamps that hold each end of the sandpaper. If you can't see the clips, then the guard is still on and needs to be removed. Hope this helps...

You did not specify how the sanding discs are meant to be attached to your sander's backing pad. My experience with this type of problem is material from the sanding process builds up on the backing pad and does not allow the sanding discs to adhere properly. If you have a velcro type system, clean the hooks on the sander's backing bad by soaking the pad's face in a plate of paint thinner for 20 to 30 minutes then use a wire brush to remove the rest of the paint physically. For adhesive pads clean the sander's backing pad surface with denatured alcohol. Do not use isopropryl or rubbing alcohol as this may not be 100% alcohol and could contain a lubricant like glycerin. When the sander's backing pad is completely dry and clean it will hold adhesive backed pads fine. Flaky paint is best scraped off before sanding, use a wide putty knife or a paint scaper to remove large flakes before sanding. This will minimize airborne dust and cleanup. For best results with adhesives, always keep your surfaces clean! Good luck and happy sanding! Michael Mittelsdorf

It will probably be the shaft from the motor to the orbital cam which is on the flat plate that you connect the sandpaper to , either the shaft or the bottom cam is broken [probably the shaft has snapped ] you can do a cheap repair with a good glue to reconnect the shaft [but you wont be able to push too hard again] or if you can get the parts just replace the shaft into the motor . they are really simple things to work on

a band aid fix, if the hook and loop is wore out, but the pad is ok, is to get a peel and stick hook and loop pad that you can stick on the pad

what is the condition of the felt pad on the driver?? The sander should not be that hard, usually you need to lift up or slightly bear down to get the machine to move left or right. Are there any exposed nails in the area you are sanding and check the grit for the sanding conditions
