Question about Braun Activator 8595 Electric Shaver
My 8595 pop-up trimmer is broken, one of the thin plastic prongs on the side is broken and it disengages from the slide shaving mode controller. Can I buy the part and replace it myself or must it be serviced? I live in zip code 94588, where's the nearest repair outlet/shop if I need to take it in?
Replacing the Braun 8000 Series Activator Motor Drive Unit. The Motor Drive Unit is a one piece unit containing the motor and shaver head. Cost $33.99 at http://shaveroutlet.com/.
To disassemble the 8000 Braun Series shaver.
Remove the plastic cover on the bottom that covers the corded socket. Be careful, there are a total of two tabs on the short sides and four very small tabs on the long sides. I usedmy fingernail to create a space big enough to insert the corner of a credit card in the center of the long side opposite the blue light indicator, then gently removed the cover. Using a screwdriver could damage the plastic.
The two sides then pop off, they only fit on their respective side when replacing. Don't lose the two small black seals on the top of each side piece.
There are a total of four screws holding the body together. Remove the screws, using the proper flat blade or torx screwdriver. The shaver will then split into. You can then remove the the Motor Drive Unit and the separate circuit board with the batteries.
This would also be a good time to clean the goo buildup from around the shaver head.
Assembly is the reverse of above. The Motor Unit will only fit in one way, there is a flat side and a angular side. Be sure the pin for the trimmer is placed in its proper hole, or it won't extend.

This is the best solution I've found. (Found it thanks to another forum). Its the whole casing which includes the trimmer. Frankly, I'm not going to argue with the price.
The shaver itself is easy to take apart. The part on the bottom (opposite from the shaver mechanism) pops off with just a slight bit of prying. Be careful not to break the pins though. Once you have that off, the narrow sides pop off pretty easily. Then you can remove the 4 screws opening up the interior.
Be careful at this point because there are a lot of parts that may fall out. (Perhaps take a picture as soon as you open it so you know where everything was when you opened it). At this point you can try your hand at fixing it (mine had 3 parts broken and loose inside), or you can simply switch it with the new casing (Which i'm going to do when I get it). Good Luck!

Remove the visible bolt from the left side of the arm rest.
Remove the window switch/door lock/mirror controls by popping the entire panel out, may need to use a flathead screwdriver.
Slide panel off of door.
Pull vapor barrier loose on the bottom right side. This will expose a coiled spring and window motor. Tape the window in the up position using masking or packaging tape.
Mark a straight line across the coil spring, to help with realigning the new motor.
Use tool j-38864 connect it near outer part of coil sprint where it hooks to retainer or in a pinch use pounted vice grips at same location ensuring they are firmly locked on spring.
Force spring clockwise to disengage it from it's retainer point.
Pull spring slightly outward just enough to clear the retainer point and slowly let it uncoil counterclockwise.
Disconnect wire connector from right end of window motor.
Push the three plastic retainer points outward as you lift up on window motor to disengage from retainers careful not to break the plastic retainers comes out pretty easy
Install new motor into the plastic retainers, make sure it is fully seated.
Reconnect wire connector to new motor.
Use J38864 or vice grips to recoil spring, reseating it to retainer point as before.
Remove tape from window and test up/down switch.
Reseal vapor barrier in place as it was before.
Slide switch control back up through hole in door panel from where it mounts and slide door over the door handle.
