Doesn’t seem to apply to the Type 203. It looks different.

The first photo of the bottom plate is too dark to show details. I have type 203 B Made in France and the clips didn’t budge without first breaking/stretching the thin outer walls of the base plate. No need to remove the wires. With mine, you have to turn the bottom shaft of the motor with a screwdriver (counter clockwise as usual) while holding the blade stationary which unscrews the blade from the motor enabling you to remove the motor after the two phillips screws are removed.

Hi Ian!

Nice explanation!

Can you provide a close up of the spudger that you used for opening the bottom plate?

I want to use the correct one, so I don ´t break that aged plastic cover.
