I am unsure wha you mean by "fix the pendulum". If you mean it stopped swinging, there are two reasons: first check the battery and contacts. Remember, even a new battery can be bad, which is why new things come with warranties. The other thing is quartz movements usually don't last too long. If the pendulum is not swinging, and is correctly attached to the movement and the battery is good, then the movement has gone bad and you need a new one. Most all clock shops keep quartz movements on hand. If you are a do-it-yourself type, you can get them off the Internet. Be sure to remove the old one first and check how thick the dial is, that's how they sell them by dial thickness.

Go to a jeweller or watch maker for a new strap.

No such thing exists. Take it to your local jeweler or a clock repairer.

There is a video in the links. The sites that say they have manuals don't and a very suspect.
