I inserted a small diameter rod into the underside of the fan motor and unscrewed the drive coupling (left hand thread) and then screwed the new drive coupling on. Simple repair, the motor direction keeps the drive coupling tight so no pliers or other tools needed.

I griped each foot with a pliers and twisted it out of its setting. I then set a new foot in place and hammered it into place with a small hammer. The feet fit snugly and did not need to be glued. Job was easy and mixer sits like new. I was glad I spent the money to replace all of the feet at once.

I used the screw driver to pry off the chewed up drive coupling but it took quite a bit of prying to get it off. I sort of scratched up underneath the drive coupling doing it. Much easier to put the new one on than take the old one off.

At first I followed the directions shown on the video and was not successful ,due to not following them correctly .Once the part came ,I tried again after trying some of the other suggestions posted .Going back to video it took me about 2 minutes after spending another 2 minutes with the other methods .I am not discounting the other methods ,but will recommend the video ,a good stout straight edge screwdriver and patience.Also be sure to protect the painted surface of the blender base.All in all am pleased I did not have to go out and buy a new blender for $100 plus .
