How to take apart Intuos pen
Ok, after my wife washed mine in my jeans, i really desperate and decided that I had nothing to lose. I searched all over the web for ways to do this and nothing!!!! So today I grew a pair and tried something and low and behold... so anyway.
*!*!*!* Remove the rubber grip and button first
(untwist tip cap and remove threaded section, slip fingernail under top edge of button and pop it straight up and off, slide rubber grip off towards point *just in case*)
Grasp your pen in both hands with the tip facing to the left
left hand should be grasped covering the tip and ONLY the section that has the recessed barrel with the raised button ridge.
Right hand should be grasped just off of the first diameter reduction from the right (ie. where the just before the pen gets thinner) and covering the eraser (unless you have really small hands)
CAREFULLY but firmly pull the two halves of the pen apart from each other !**!*!DO NOT TWIST THE PEN!!!! the pen should come apart without a problem and now you have access to the inner goodness of the Wacom Intuos Pen
Note: when putting the pen back together, be gentle and place the board in the eraser side first, if it doesn't push the eraser tip up, twist it slowly till it slides all the way in (be sure to try to leave a tiny space for eraser play.) Twist the pen (board and eraser cap end) until you can see the two receptors for the buttons, slide the tip end cap on and press firmly until the caps seat together and the holes line up for the switch. slip the rubber cover back on, twist on the threaded tip and clip the button back on, that should do it, Hope this helps!
