I replaced the battery but the wiring for the charger detached and it won't hold the charge.
The manufacture does not have a wiring diagram or parts diagram for the 90540361SV charger. You might be able to take it to a tool repair center in your area, to see if the can rewire it correctly. Other than that, you may have to purchase a new charger.

Does this piece screw on? How does it attach?

Looking at the parts diagram, it looks like the front of the guard snaps on to the tab on the front of the motor housing and it has one screw holding it on the back.

Yes, you must disassemble the upper housing of the trimmer to replace the battery.

Review: Black And Decker - CST1100 Crapp...
Will not hold a charge. Had it for 3 years of very light use. Never had more than 15-20 minutes of battery life from the start.

I would guess your battery was bad from the start,,been down that road. But a
new battery did wonders and worked for
up to 1 hour and half at full charge and
I got new battery under warranty from store, they agreed that was a bad one.
3 years old you probably out of luck.
