Followed the directions on the video on your site for how to repair this. The only difficulty I had was getting the retainer ring off. It would not budge, so I had to take a hand saw and cut the plastic spool cover in two and then cut the retainer ring in two. I had replacement parts, but it was a battle to get to that stage. Once I got that off, I could replace the lower drive shaft and complete the repair as per the video.

All that was needed was a screwdriver and wrench to replace lower drive shaft housing assembly as this came with the drive cable ! This is not noted when ordering new lower drive shaft. No need to disassemble whole trimmer assembly.
