I need to replace the stationary shredder in this thing(has small piece missing out of the side) and I was just wondering if anyone has tackled this and if there are any words of wisdom beyond what I've read in the service manual for this. The manual says to use a 5/16 piece of flat steel and wedge it over the rotating shredder nut(covered with a socket do it doesn't mess up the nut) and beat on it while wedged at the inside edge of the stationary shredder to pop it out. It also instructed me to use penetrating oil around the edge to get it loose. Can I just use a "wonder bar" to pry this up or do I need to make something? A new disposal is over 2k and the part is about 250, so I don't think I'm going to be able to sell them a new disposal.
Thanks for any replies.
