    I cannot find the spark arrestor screen on my redmax BCZ26 trimmer? This muffler doesnt open up either. It would be on the muffler outlet side right? I have no idea how Im going to get it out of there once I do find it? Thanks

    on my bcz2400, I used a pair of pliars to pull a ring out around th discharge side of the muffler. The arrestor is connected to it. No need to remove the muffler.

    the screen gets all gummed up with carbon from unburnt oil and then your trimmer wont run well or at all
