  • Flat-head screwdriver or other prying tool
  • #2 or 5/64 hex tool (only needed for manual control rod trim piece)
  • (recommended): a rag


Step 1

Pry off triangular trim piece. Use a flat-head screwdriver to pry it off.  I recommend putting a rag around the end of the screwdriver to prevent scratching.

Step 2

Removing the manual adjustment stick: The manual control stick is held in place with a set screw.  Loosen the screw just a bit with the  #2 or 5/64 hex tool, and the whole control should come loose.


If the piece has the manual control stick, put the stick through the hole, and line it up.  The piece is keyed, and will only fit completely in the hole one way.  Then line up the clips and snap the piece in place.
