Hi Allan,

I went through this a couple of times, even had it written up,  but lost
this.  What I remember, you just take the whole thing systematically appart,
and make sure to place the little wheels etc so you can reassemle it "in
reverse order".  There are a bunch of  balls that probably just fall out,
don't worry, they should be replaced, so just keep a sample, go to a special
hardware store and buy a box with new ones ( several years ago I believe I
paid $ 5.- for 100).  Clean everthing thoroughly and put it back together.
Should be like new.  (Hope the potentiometer works or you might need that at
a part from Yaesu!)

Good luck,  73,  Gerd,  WB8IFM in Dayton.
