The primer bulb on my model 358.791580 32cc 19.cu 2 cycle weedwacker "sticks" and does not draw gasoline. How do I replace it?

I know that it can be difficult to have your equipment not working properly. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I have found two links that will provide some information on the issue. I would suggest that you change all the fuel lines with the primer bulb, this way you know everything works. I hope these help.

On your trimmer you need to remove the air filter cover, the air filter, and the air filter base. Then you will have access to the primer bulb. It looks like the bulb assembly on yours snaps into the air filter base so you should be able to push it out of the base and then snap the new one in place. The primer bulb is part number 530047721 and is available HERE .
Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Sounds like a lot of bother just to get to the primer bulb! Repair parts breakdown page 20 instruction manuel. Is there a larger blow up available of how to take all of this apart?
