  • 1 small brush
  • 1 tissue in case you need to clean the screen
  • some silicone grease (Eg. Molykote 55 O-Ring Grease)

Step 2

  • On the bottom unscrew screw #5. Keep it apart from other screws, this one is different.
  • On the top unscrew the 4 screws from the speaker grill - #1 first, then #3, then #2 and finish with #4, paying attention to the seal behind.

Step 3

  • Remove the speaker grill from the remote control. Pay attention to keep the rubber link in its housing and tilt the speaker grill there. (This avoids deforming the seal)
  • You can use a flat screwdriver to help you to remove the speaker grill, inserting the screwdriver slightly in position #1
