I would like to first tell you what the problem is with either your Bing or Bear head. Inside the head is a motor that works the mouth. On this rotating motor is a pulley type system, which has a twine or you could call a heavy string piece. It is attached to the motor, and when the is activated it rotates the thread round the spindle on the motor and the mouth operates.. It is quite a difficult to take this head apart. I worked on my Bing for some time to find out this problem.. The string comes away with use and of course time, that is is why the mouth no longer moves. If you wish to try and repair, you first have to remove the head from the base. If you look there are 4 heavy duty staples just round the collar neck area. They will come out with a small head screwdriver or something pointed. Just work it slowly under till staple raises up, then just pull it out. Once they are all removed the head should be loose. This is only to give you access to seeing the internals firstly. Now comes the hardest part. The soft moving part of the mouth needs to be removed. You need to work it of slowly as there is a glue base on it, so care is needed here and can take time. If you managed this all is left is the metal pin it was on. Now inside is the plastic unit that moves the mouth this is glued in which is the main problem. And this is the issue, it is pushed on and the only way is to remove is to have a precision head screwdriver and work it off... Best done by someone who is quite good with their hands and very patienced. Because it may break. Took me severals hours to remove. When you get it off the internal workings will come out of the head. There is no other way of doing this. Having the head loose allows you to look at the piece and the workings. A small torchlight held by someone is best as you work out the mouth fitting.....As i said it is no easy job and took me long periods of time to get to this point. I wish you all the luck in achieving this.......

SOURCE: I have a lifesize grinch
if you have the same on as I do, gently pull off his head - there is a large dial that you turn to unlock him into the standing position.
