The author neglects to advise that this piece needs to be plied out, You are left to guess as to how to best do this. The plastic is very soft and pliable. The piece seems to be lodged in place by its shape. I am currently stuck at this point. Looking for another website to work around this point.

There are 2 more screws holding unit on the bottom. Must remove the handle assembly to access. There is a tab under the on/off switch. Remove to access the first screw. Follow around for other screws. My motor was burned out. No luck finding a replacement. This site is probably intended that you break the unit, and purchase new.
