Carburetor rebuild question

I have a Husqvarna Hedge Trimmer with a Zama W4 carb on an 18CC 2 cycle engine. The unit is 20 yrs old and I suspect it needs a carb. rebuild.
I'm fairly handy but have never done a project like this.
How difficult is it to tear down one of these little carbs, rebuild and adjust?
Thanks for any feedback.

Not the pro here but for $30 it might be better replacing the carb.

It's not that hard but with that age and a new carb likely only double the price of a kit, and the chances the rebuild not taking, I would price a new carb for it.


Just needs a bigger hammer

Thanks for the replies. I initially was planning on replacing but few places carry the replacement and it runs $55-60. I may have to bite the bullet.
