Loosen 9 screws (combination screw T20 / slot # 5)
  • Loosen 9 screws (combination screw T20 / slot # 5)

  • Tool: T20 / TR20 which u.a. included here. Or with a flat-head screwdriver # 5. I recommend a T20 / TR20 because it handles better without damaging the screws.

  • With a flat object, the housing can now be easily opened along the seam. For example, with Jimmy, which is shown here. It also works with a flat knife or a thin Japan spatula.

    • If the unit is heavily used / dirty, simply pry slightly at several points along the seam until the case opens without force.

  • The housing is now open and further steps can be taken.

  • If necessary can now be cleaned. (in this picture you can see that it is obviously necessary)

  • Do not remove the grease! The drive needs that. Of course, it can also be replaced by a new one.
