    • To do this roll the maelstrom over so the rubber cover on the back is facing up. The rubber pad simply peels off exposing the metal backplate.

    • There is a ribbon wire connecting the volume wheel to the circuit board. This is not permanently attached, and can be plugged back in if it gets pulled out.

    • Remove the three 2mm screws from the circuit board to separate it from the back plate.

    • The circuit board is now completely separate from the housing and the wires can now be inspected.

    • Peel back the tape on the wires to inspect any damage to the wires if there is any.
