This has given me a better understanding on the newer models of machines, I feel a little more confident in taking them apart to do some much needed cleaning! Thank you! :)

Thank you for video. I have taken my Singer 5040 apart to replace clutch plate cover but am unable to get clip off to replace. Is there a special tool needed?
