Introduction

If your in-line amplifier has stuck or sticky volume wheels then it may need to be cleaned.

Remove the 4 screws from the inline amplifier using a #6 torque screwdriver head. The screws measure 1/4" long and 3/32" in diameter. Open the amplifier by using the smaller plastic opening tool. Place it in the headphone jack and use leverage to pry open the plastic halves.
