I need to replace the whole trimmer head and I dont know how to get the gear case off so I can put the new one on. Can anyone help?
ANSWER : To replace the trimmer head you don’t need to replace the gear case. If you look closely about a 1/4 inch up from the safety guard you’ll see a hole in the side of the “gearcase” assemby. (you may have to clean the old dead grass clippings off to see it) You can shove a rod into the hole that will stop the head from spinning freely and I believe you spin the head clock wise (reverse threads) to remove the head.

ANSWER : Depends on the trimmer, all heads are different. However, the majority of trimmers are wound as follows:

How do I replace the old head with a new one?
ANSWER : Your old head should simply unscrew from the gear box. You should not have to disassemble the head to get it off. Some models have a small hole above the gear box where you can insert a small screwdriver to lock the drive shaft so that the entire unit stops spinning. Keep in mind that some models have left-hand threaded heads while others have right-hand threaded heads. In most cases, you’ll unscrew the head opposite of whichever way the head normally turns while you’re trimming. This is by design so that the machine doesn’t unscrew the head itself while you’re using it. You can find replacement heads for most makes and models of trimmers at PartsBuggy.com.
