Initially, I tried to remove the broken drive coupler by holding the shaft with needle-nosed pliers and rotating the coupler counterclockwise (left = loose). After several unsuccessful attempts, I read some repair reviews and watched the repair video. I did exaclty what the video showed and repaired the blender in less than 15 minutes. Used a flat head screwdriver to gently lift the drive coupler, and rotated clockwise a little. Lifted and rotated repeatedly until coupler was unscrewed. Simply screwed on the new drive coupler by turning counterclockwise, and hand tightened.
