Re: 2465 Ch1 attenuator repair question


 

I've been told that you can remove those push-on knobs by gently heating them (e.g. with a hair dryer) before you try to remove them. The heat supposedly softens the plastic enough that it will bend but not break during removal.

I broke the internal retaining clips on one of those knobs on my 2236 trying to remove it, and have been working up the courage to try the hair dryer removal method on a parts mule.

I haven't tried this yet, so take this as hearsay rather than sage advice.
