The head of the monopod has two mounting screws. The first, outer one, moves down to expose the smaller inner mounting screw (which fits my D70s).
Problem is that the outer mounting screw is jammed down into the frame of the pod. When I unscrewed the camara from the pod, the outer screw did not jump out again. Now its stuck and i'm afraid to use brute force and ignorance to force it out, fearing that i'll damage the threading.

The door handle is a tricky customer. Is it the inside or the outside handle? The inside handle comes off by undoing a screw in the trim bezel under the handle. It's a dish shaped piece of plastic held in place by clips moulded in the bezel itself and a single Philips head screw. Take the screw out and carefully pull the plastic off from under the handle.
Next, remove the arm rest (two screws holding it in place on the lower side of the arm rest, you have to kneel down to see them). If the vehicle has electric windows, find and loosen the screw that holds down the switch cluster, remove the switch cluster.
Now you can remove the door card (this is the inner door trim panel) by very carefully but firmly pulling on the card all along the edge of the door card until the card is free. You will probably need a flat tool like a large flat screwdriver. There is a special tool for this job, but it is unlikely you will have one.
Carefully (see how often I use this word!) carefully lift up the door card to free the top edge from the door edge and put it to one side.
The inner handle and mechanism is now exposed, as much as it will ever be exposed under the dust proofing plastic shield, which must very carefully be pulled away. It is glued to the door inner with a very pliable sealant which can be used again to reseal the dust cover after the fix.
You can now loosen the inner handle and remove it. A plastic clip holds the actuator rod to the door. It will slide off to release the rod, which will now just pull out of the hole where it is mounted.
From this aspect you should also now be able to see the screw that holds the outer handle from the inside of the door.
Good luck, it's a tricky fix.
You should not need to change the thread size on your monopod. All tripods, monopods, cameras and other accessories have standard fittings. Check that you haven't accidentally crossed the threads on your Panasonic which would make it difficult to locate the threads to tighten it.
Also, check that you are not trying to screw the monopod into the hole. Some cameras have a smaller hole beside the tripod thread.
You may be able to contact your monopod manufacturer in case they supply an adapter that wasn't supplied with your monopod.
1 Examine the inside of the door. The handles of some early GE Spacemaker microwave models were attached after the two inner door panels were assembled to the outer door. If you see two recessed screws opposite the handle attaching points, undo them with a Phillips screwdriver and remove the handle. If not, go to the next step.
2 Insert the blade of a thin, flat-head screwdriver into the top, outer corner of the door, between the plastic inner frame and the outer door. Gently pry the inner frame out and slip a putty knife into the exposed opening on top of the door. Slide the putty knife toward the hinges to free the top of the inner frame; repeat on the front and bottom edges of the door and lift the inner frame out to expose a second metal inner frame.
3 Insert a thin, flat-head screwdriver into each of the small square openings on the top and bottom of the inner metal frame, starting at the handle end of the door. Undo the attaching clips by gently levering the inner door away, using the rim of the outer door as a fulcrum. Move the inner door away from the outer door on its hinges.
4 Remove the glass from the outer door. Undo the two screws holding the handle to the outer door with a Phillips screwdriver. Screw the replacement handle onto the door and tighten securely.
5 Replace the glass panel and reassemble the door by snapping the two inner frames back in place.
the spring goes under the spool(where the string is wound), the outer housing is where the grey piece and screw are used, as it secures the head to the shaft. you will need to put the outer housing one,then the grey piece,the screw,the spring,spool and then cap. Hope this helped Tim
The bottom threads on most tripod heafs are 3/8", but some are 1/4"/ The mounting screws on MOST tripods are 3/8", but I have seen `/4" (especially on monopods. IF:
tripod=3/8 head = 1/4 need mounting plate 3/8 female to 1/4 male
tripod = 1/4 head - 1/4 nothing
tripod 3/8 head 3/8 nothing'
tripod 1/4 head = 3/8 there is an adapter/reducer that screws into the 3/8
' female and reduces that to 1/4"
To know the exact size of the screw, you have to get the circumference of the hole where you will insert the screw. If possible to bring with you the outer mounting in buying the screw to have a perfect fitting.
Each leg lock has a leg locking lever and a screw that hold the clamp assembly tight to the leg. Unlock the leg lock lever, loosen the screw above it that holds the clamp tight to the leg. The legs should fit into each other sice each leg is slightly larger or smaller then then next one. Slide the clamps in the approprite places and tighten the screw enough to hold the clamp assembly tight, but do not over tighten it. Over tightening will damage the 679 tubes.
