Can anyone give or direct me to instructions to undress the STS overhead console so that I can get access to inspect or troubleshoot the Universal Home Remote unit?

Is it difficult ?

Tools needed ?

Thanks for any help.

I think it's held in place with spring clips. I remember reading here that it pops off.

Thanks, Chas.

I got similar info from friends by e-mail.

Will report on success or failure.

The thing does, in fact, snap off. It is held in place by a half dozen or so metal retaining clips that snap into receivers.

But they are REALLY, REALLY, tight, and the lip of the cover is pretty sharp. I could not manage to get it off with my fingers.

I wound up using a flat plastic body filler smoothing tool to spread the force and save my finger tips.
