    • Try not to break these clips as this will cause structural integrity issues upon reassembly

  3. Work your way around the four clips, loosening each a little at a time. Eventually, all four clips will be loose enough to remove the base plate. Work your way around the four clips, loosening each a little at a time. Eventually, all four clips will be loose enough to remove the base plate.

Does anyone have a video tutorial explaining how the heck one removes the base?? I bought a spudger and it still doesn't help. It is awfully hard to loosen up.. I kept trying and trying but I stopped cause I'm concerned I might break the clips and the outside which the plastic is starting to stretch.. the clips are starting to lose their shape as well and worried I might break the spudger... Thanks

I am having the same experience as NeonAera posted. I could clear 2 of the 4 clips, but not the others and getting the same issue of distorting the outside wall of the base , if I continue to try and pry the clips with the spudger. Thanks

We had a jammed . I disassembled according to the guide, scraped out the rust I found, lubricated with WD40 and reassembled. Went from not moving to working great. I broke all 4 tabs (guess I lack patience…) but gorilla taped it back together and it's totally solid.
