1. I tried prying off the old coupling with a screwdriver as described in the directions that came with the new part. It didn't move.
2. I then broke off the rest of the plastic around the old disk.
3. Using an adjustable wrench, I was able to bend the old aluminum disk up all around, to allow more space between the disk and shaft.
4. By holding onto the shaft with a needle nose pliers, I was able to turn the bent disk with the wrench and the disk came off.
5 Installing the new coupling was a 5 second job.
