Already tried what it is showing but have been prying, acts like something is hanging on, had the saw running then the chain kept getting to loose found out the screw head was missing, so I can't back that screw off. don't think it would matter. afraid to break anything else-thanks

Without getting the broken screw out , I don't think it will come apart! It will need to be removed, either by drilling or working it out with punch.

that's going to be a great challenge, have been looking at it. tight place to do much

You might want to bite the bullet and take it to the dealer! Sorry.

For your memory in the future, I took out the back bolt and found a easy out a touch larger put that in, took a small screwdriver under the back screw and little tension on both ends it popped out, Thanks
