I believe the pot is screwed into the pump body/volute. Lift the complete pump enough to turn the entire pot counter clockwise, to unthread it off of the volute.

I really would need a picture to be more accurate. If you have no way to hold the lid on to get suction, you have to replace the front bowl (pot) as that is where the strainer basket is and how the flow is created. That bowl (pot) unscrews from the front housing. You have to be able to free the suction pipe from the bowl and have enough room to spin the bowl off. You may also have to remove the pressure side pipe if you do not have enough room to turn the bowl (pot) off. If you can not get the bowl off of the front plate, you will have to replace the bowl and front plate all at once.

If it is only a pinhole it should be an easy fix. First dry the unit thoroughly, the drier the better. Then use superglue gel to patch the hole from both sides.You may wish to smooth the glue for aesthetics just make sure you leave enough so the glue can hold to the interior under pressure. The gel will dry overnight and is non-toxic. Larger holes or cracks would require a plastic welder or applying fiber glass.

Most likely cause is a broken idle pulley spring. Second possibly is a broken belt.

There are several safety interlock switches, all of which must "make" before the starter will engage. These include parking brake (on), clutch (disengage), blades (raised and disengaged). You might have to check each with a meter.
