How do I open the housing to rplace the drive? Many thanks.


If you don't see any screw holes, look around for some rubber feet, chances are the rubber feet are hiding some screws. If you remove those carefully enough, you can easily put them back in. Once all the the screws are removed carefully pry open the case and remove/replace the hard drive inside.

Navigon 2100 - need to open the case to replace usb port,do not want to brake the case, don't see screw holes - help


To open the case you will need a very small flat screw driver to pop off the back of the case (be very careful as the clips holding it together are very small). You will then have four small phillip screws to remove, so that you can remove the front of the case. To remove the circuit board, there will be two very small phillip screws holding it in place once you've remove the front case.

Can't open case--screw holes are too small


Is it a Torx head - sort of 'star' shaped? Though a fine Jewelers x would have done it. There are also machine type screws that have no manual equivalent it seems, - just screwed for life- perchance these cases are of that type.
