I do parts and service for Husqvarna and I would just like to say please always make sure the chain brake is disengaged before taking off the side cover. For some reason people like to take the cover off with the brake engaged on these saws. The handle for the brake stays on the saw and the mechanism on the cover. You have to disengage the brake with a pair of pliers or something else and it is a very stout spring without the handle to help. At my shop I made a tool to make it easy so I do not have to charge people to disengage it for them. I cannot however speak for other shops as they could and might charge you to do this. Btw, this is a great saw.
One time when I was changing the chain in my garage a "friend" thought he would be funny and engage the chain brake. After blessing everyone and everything in ear shot and one less friend later I got the brake disengaged and completed my 5 min job a couple hrs later. Now I use a reusable zip ty to hold the chain brake to the handle preventing it from being "accidentally" engaged. Hard lessen learned.
