How do I take the nozzle apart to fix it on my high pressure washer model 580.768324?

I have a leak at the nozzle and need to know how to take the nozzle apart to fix it. There are 2 tabs on the nozzle to maybe squeeze it to open and remove the outer part of the nozzle. Does it have an O-ring inside? It slides back and forth with no resistance from low to high pressure when the nozzle is detached from the hose. When the engine is running, it leaks from the back of the nozzle and has no pressure. This nozzle wand end is new last spring. Can this nozzle be repaired? I have spent $50 bucks on replacing the unloader valve at a repair shop (now this) and I do not want to buy another $40 wand again. I hate to trash the whole thing for what seems as a minor fix.
Thanks for any help with saving and repairing the nozzle.

The instructions for cleaning the nozzle with the nozzle cleaning kit are shown in the owner's manual for your pressure washer. Here is a link for the manual in case you need it:

Owner's Manual

. Nozzle maintenance instructions begin on page 13 of the manual. If you do not have the nozzle cleaning kit, you can order one from the

Sears PartsDirect

website. The part number for this kit is B3708. Follow the instructions in the manual for cleaning the nozzle. This may fix your problem. Beyond the kit and the instructions in the manual, there are no other methods for fixing the nozzle on this pressure washer. There are no separate replacement parts available for the nozzle. If cleaning the nozzle using the kit and the instructions in the manual does not resolve your problem, then you will likely need to replace the nozzle.
