KitchenAid Blender: The directions said to use a screw driver to pry off the old drive coupling, and then clean out any remaining broken pieces. The drive coupling screws on so that did not make sense to me. I called KitchenAid and they gave me a number of the closest KitchenAid dealer. I was told that I needed to be careful not to bend the drive shaft; I would need to find some way to secure the drive shaft from turning while unscrewing (a reverse screw) the drive coupling. Find the appropriate size thin ignition wrench. Remove the old coupling and screw on the new coupling.
