Old coupling was harder to get off than I anticipated from reading the other repair stories on your site, but those reviews gave me encouragement to keep trying. Using the screw driver under the coupling as instructed, I lifed up on the coupling but had a very hard time getting it to budge. After many tries it eventually came off, but the rubber and metal parts of the coupling had separated by that time. No damage done. I cleaned off the shavings before installing the new part, as instructed, and had no more problems at all. To test the repaired blender I then made a batch of margaritas. Success! My problems getting the old part off might have been partly because I' m 77 yrs. old, female (less strength to gein with) with arthritis in my hands, BUT I DID IT! Thanks!
