Dave, use a putty/spackling knife/blade and start with small pry bar (aka screwdriver)and as chassis starts to rise start pushing blade in and along as much chassis as you can. Start in one corner work toward the other 1/3 way and then other corner and start back. Will pop at some point and then you can pull back chassis to get it out. PL
:Good ideas. Yes, I think it may have been stored in an uncontrolled space. Need to find my thin 1 1/2" scraper blade - that's about the width of the bushings. Thanks to those who provided valuable input. -Dave
:: I can understand your concern to pry gently, but you may be prying too gently to avoid creating damage you can't repair.
:: I think your radio was sbjected to heat and the rubber bushings have melted. These were typically around the screw holes. When prying, pry near the screw holes. You may want to put somehting down on the wood to protect that, too.
:: AES carries replacements for the rubber bushings. The ones in your radio of course are shot.
