The model number on my Craftsman weedeater is 358.791580. I need to change the throttle assembly but I'm not sure how to get the housing apart to access the cable.

Go to and select parts. Enter the model number of your trimmer and you will be offered 2 selections. Choose "driveshaft/handle/shield" and you can see a parts diagram of how the throttle housing is put together.

Remove the 2 screws on the side and the housing will separate. Separate it slowly and look at the positioning of the throttle cable and the other parts inside it. Draw yourself a picture if you want so you can reassemble it easily.
