    • WARNING: first of all disconnect an amp from the power outlet!

    • Please be careful - tube amps can hold a serious amount of electrical charge that can cause injuries or even death. Avoid touching any wires or contacts with your bare hands or instruments that have no reliable insulation.

    • Let's start by removing the rear chassis screws. All of the screws we are going to deal with work nicely with a PH2 bit.

    • Then remove two side screws that also hold the amp chassis in place.

    • Below the chassis you'll find 4 more phillips screws holding a rear cover in place - remove them as well.

    • Now it's time to remove the nuts on the input jacks and our broken volume pot - I used pliers to do that, but it is advisable to use a small adjustable wrench in order to avoid any unwanted scratches.

    • Next let's remove the volume knob - you'll need a flat 2.5 bit for that. Carefully insert the bit into the hole on the rear side of the knob to undo a tiny screw inside of it.

    • That's it - chassis is free 👍.

    • Hint: use a plastic tray or a magnetic mat to safely store all of those screws and nuts. You can even write where all those parts come from.

    • Slightly lift it up and pull towards you with just a hand to access the internals.

    • That's it - the amp's chassis is right in front of you.

    • Well done 👍
