Cannot disassemble Milwaukee 6016 to replace brushes
I have removed the screws and partially separated the body. After it separates about 1/4 inch there is a catch that prevents complete separation. The catch seems to be somewhere in the lower part of the body. What is the trick/technique to get it open? Thanks, Giles

Re: Cannot disassemble Milwaukee 6016 to replace brushes
Exactly what screws did you remove. you have to remove the bottom platen first (pad) then remove the housing screws. you need to remove the fan also and then might need to apply some pressure to split the housing halves.

make sure all screws are out first. the 2 halves are held together with clips. they will be hard to pull apart. try and make a small opening with a knife between the 2 halves and work around untill you come across a clip, push down on the clip to release it . there will be a few holding them together and you might find if you unclip one and move on it will clip back into place so a few thin instruments will be needed all the way around
did you remove the screws that are under the handle halves, and before I completely disassemble the tool do you have a shop vacuum and if so remove the dust bag and put the hose on that outlet and run the tool and see if it pulls anything out. I would only split the halves as a last resort. Let me know if you need more assistance.
you dont need a puller for the fan, remove the lower pad assembly and the torx screw holding the bearing in place. use a screwdriver to gently lift the fan. the bottom of tool has to be disassembled to open the halves. Go to Milwaukeetools.com and type in your model number under the download section for a parts/tool explosion. Let me know if you need more assistance
without knowing what the model number is you also have to remove the pad assembly and usually you will find some there if all removed you can GENTLY pry the cover halves apart. Go to Makitatools.com with you model number and you can download a breakdown for this tool.
Milwaukee tools have a 5yr warranty, best thing to do is to take it to a service center. It could be anything from the cord to switch, brushes, field coil etc. If it is newer than 5 yrs, thats the best route.
I would need the exact model number and serial number to help but the brush number is 22-18-0710 and there could be a couple different switches. Either give the ser number (the alpha code) or you can go direct to Milwaukeeelectrictool.com and type in the model number 6140 on the page for the breakdown. it might be easier to let me do it. I worked there for 17 years and if you can't get the alpha code look at the switch and I would need a good description of it
