I have never done your year Buick, but if it is a metal cable I did help a friend with a BMW that had that system. I have a 1992 LeSabre service manual and it tells you to replace the assembly (typical GM solution)
I the cable is tangled, and kinked, it will fail again even if you get it back together. Again if it is like the BMW, there is a spool that the motor drives. the cable comes to that spool from two directions and each end winds in the opposite direction. So when one cable is wrapping on the spool, the other cable is unwinding, when you reverse directions, the cable does the same.
Hope this helps, have you done an internet search?
try to wind the new yarn on a paper towel roller and as you use it that will unwind easier.. you can put the roll on a horizontal mount that will allow it to feed out untangled..your monut could be attatched to say, an end table..it could be a short peice of broomhandle..
Remove the top cover to your engine, along with any attachments. Your cord is in the top of this cover. You will be able to see where the problem is when you pull the cord.If you find that the cord has tangled somehow, you will need to untangle the cord. Be careful not to damage the cor in the untangling process. GOOD LUCK.
I know it may sound stupid but on the spool their should be arrows that direct you which way to wind the line if you just added line. Some think one goes one way and the other goes the opposite but they both go around the spool in the same way and do not go in the knotches at the top just out the holes. Make sure the spring did not fall out of spool if their is one in that model and while it is running just tap the bottom of the spool on the ground. If that does not work more than likely when you pushed the line back up into the shaft to screw on the knob the line is pinched between the two holding slots. Turn the trimmer upside down (while off) and push knob in and pull line on both sides to advance line. If line does not come out your line is wound wrong or twisted inside spool and must be untangled and reattached. Both lines run the same direction on spool!
just tack the recoil off they are usually easy to remove do to the nature of the part then you should be able to unwind and untangle. in the future dont let go of the cord until it is wound back up that will elininate the back lash and tangling
