It will spin off. Install new coupling threading left to right. The blender will snug up the coupling during use. If you are in doubt, follow the instructions of the website\'s video.

The coupling that drove the blades had become too worn to work.
Used a screwdriver to pry off the original part, which came off in pieces, and installed the new part. I have not used it yet so hope it works as before. So glad not to have to buy a new blender. I don't use it often but nice to have. I ordered two couplings, and will know just what to do next time.. It seems like the coupling is the weakest part of the blender.

Rubber fins on coupling broke off
I've replaced this part before so I had no problems. Unplug the blender. Stick screwdriver in bottom side of blender to stop fins on shaft from turning. That stops the shaft from turning. While holding screwdriver in place put pliers on old coupling and turn clockwise. Mine came off real easy. Remember it comes off backwards from most things that screw on.

Coupling teeth breaking off
1. I followed someone's You Tube instructions. Not the instructions that said to pry the coupling off.
2. With screwdriver, hit the coupling teeth making the coupling turn clockwise. I hit the coupling teeth three or four times and the coupling just screwed off.
3.. Screw the new coupling on.
4. Using the blender will tighten it.

The "teeth" (???) that fit on top of the motor housing and fit up into the bottom of the jar when it's set on top had worn down and would no longer turn the blade inside the jar.
Screwed and pried off the coupling with the worn-down "teeth" or whatever you call those things and screwed the new one back on. that's it!.
