Cracking the case to get to the left hinge
\015 Randy,\015\012\015\012Is there a web site that has the information (diagrams) on how to crack the case to get to the left hinge. It is sticking and needs to be lubricated or replaced. \015\012I have seen a hinge on another set like mine (M465-E) and the M460 user guide on line is close but does not show how to get inside. \015\012I have a hinge from another set and there are three holes in the shaft end of the hinge. Does it just slide in or are there three screws which hold it in place? If there are screws how do you get t them?\015\012\015\012Horace Peele\015\012Horace\015
