While using vise grips to hold the current coupling in place, use a flat headed screw driver to turn the metal piece to the right (if you're looking at the bottom of the blender).
3. This should release the coupling. Then unscrew the coupling to remove it.
4. Screw the new coupling in and put the bottom the blender back on.

Hope that helps!
Hi,

I tried this method and the metal bar with the flathead opening on the bottom will NOT budge. I also tried the method in the video by giving the coupler a wack in a clockwise direction.. I can get it it to spin, but it doesn't unscrew. Does anyone have any other ideas/methods for the KBS560 series blenders? I spent nearly two hours trying to get the coupler off and am tempted to throw in the towel and buy a new blender.

Thanks in advance!

Same problem here and the appliance parts phone person was no help at all. Told me to watch the video. Thanks. Pretty annoying especially since I just bought a new canister along with the coupler. I have spent way too much time trying to get the part off. On my way to buy a new blender.
