Console fell and now front cover is broken and apart
The front cover tabs are broken and won't stay on unit, the red wire is broken in two, a little plug is off and 1 tiny board is loose in there. Can you buy a replacement front cover complete with electronics? We live in Ontario Canada if there is a place that sells such things.

have you taken off the valve covers to see if the connectors are broken the wires to the injectors and the glow plugs and they are molded into the valve cover gasket over time the little tab that holds them together breaks and they come apart the gaskets are about 110 dollars through dorman
There is a Black sticky label on the hard drive end of the unit..Pull it off
Get a #8 torx bit driver and remove the screw under where the label was........Pull the top cover about 1/2 " towards other end of unit.
Remove all the philips screws that have arrows near them.
The top cover folds away from the rear of the unit. Be careful not to break any tabs on the front of the case. There are also small wires attached to the top cover assby.
I just had this same problem. It's an easy fix. The "washers" that fell out aren't washers, they're the reason that the button fell into the unit. They are plastic "rivet heads" from the way the frame of the button is melted onto the cover. You can throw them away. I used super glue to re-attach the button to the cover.
The little sensor should be in the round recess in the top of that assembly. When you are putting the cover back on you have to use a pair of needle nose pliers to push the sensor into the round recess until it is snug. It is hard to do because the wires to the sensor are very short and you have to be careful not to break the wires on the sensor. The sensor is a little microphone that senses the noise of the dirt going through the EDF. The first time I did mine I didn't push it in hard enough and came out of the EDF recess and fell inside the vacuum body.
I just looked at a friend's PS2. Same story, tripped over cord, unit fell to floor. Unit powers up and sys. config. screen comes on but the drive didn't seem to be spinning up. Opened the case and found that the shaft of the drive motor for the laser tray had popped out of it's centering retainer ( little black bushing/holder). With the top off the unit, looking at the unit from the front, on the right side in the rear corner you'll see the motor. The worm shaft (bronze colored rod) runs towards the front of the unit. Where it ends it should sit centered in a black plastic holder, if it's off to the side a little pressure will pop it back in. Put the cover back on, and power it up, you should hear the drive spinning up. If it does you should be set. Hope this helps.
Chances are the tab from the top of the door of your console has broken off. It is a very simple problem to fix. It is either the one at the front just behind the power/reset button or the one at the back just behind the little tab that holds your disc in place and stops it from spinning while your door is open. Open up your console... there are three small holes at the front... two are at the very front and one is on the right side and a bit smaller that is one of the ones that may be missing a tab. Look at the underside of the door... is there a tab directly above that hole if so then it is not that one, if it is not there, simply glue it back on or use something small and about have the size of the two tabs at the front to synthesize it. If it is there look at the back behind the thing that stops your disc from spinning and see if the tab on the top is missing from there and if it is do the same for if it was missing from the front only make it twice as long as the tabs in front. Hope this helped
