    Unhappy Tried & tried but failed doing what?

    I thought today I’ll have a go & having read many lines of wisdom, like people saying they have done it many times ‘How 2’ read back to front but it beat me …..

    Removing it wasn’t too bad the hints again very helpful but, & there’s always a but that switch connection just would not come apart. In the end I admitted defeat & started to reassemble in the reverse order. What a of a job. Took a bit more off that didn’t help so put it back, tried leaving one of the bits till last that also just did not help. I had read in one post ‘two people could be handy’, not sure on that one. In the end cause I’m a patient guy it started to go back together tested it & once the screws & a bit of trim were back in place tested again & walked away very unhappy. ...........

    I am of the belief that had I watched someone carry out this procedure I would have succeeded. ........

    Yes Terry.What are you trying to take apart. There are some "strage" clips as it were that hold connections together so they don,t vibrate apart.
