Yes, I have the same issue. By prizing open the case there appears to be another 2 screw lugs inside at the bottom near the existing torx screws.

From searching another forum where a user had disassembled a TomTom 300 you may have to prize off the front bezel surrounding the LCD screen. As this has been sealed with a waterproof rubber membrane it is stuck down very well.

I believe once this has been removed the 2 screws will be accessable.

On the rear at the bottom of the unit are 2 hidden screws hidden behind round caps.

Remove the plastic lugs with a small screw driver to reveal 2 Torx T6 screws.

Gently split the case and remove the cable running from the rear 4 pin cradle connector to the motherboard at the 3 pin socket.

Now you can replace the battery easily.

    Purchased 62 piece security bit from Maplin, which contains all the bits to remove the screws on my Tomtom rider, 6 screws in total. Two of the screws were to deep for the bit to reach so I gently drill the hole a little larger with a large drill bit to allow me to reach screws. Be carefull not to go too deep otherwise you may damage screw heads.

Harley Davidson 2006 FXDLI Dyna Low Rider fuse box


Hi Anonymous, on a Dyna all fuses, circuit breakers, relays, and modules will be behind the left side panel cover secured by grommets, four nuts or screws. On later models the electrical panel bracket cover secured by four nuts or screws must also be removed to gain access to electrical components. Good luck and have nice day.

Tip

Head Up Display (HUD) Adjustment


1) remove the two Torx screws above the monitor (the stereo / navagation screen). Use a T10 Torx socket to remove screws. 2) The monitor easily comes out as a single piece. No need unplug the monitor, just let it hang off to the side. 3) You will see a cable secured to a clip. Un-clip the cable and you can spin it (by hand) and the HUD will move left and right. 4) Further back and to the left is a 13mm nut on a shaft that has 6mm hex end. Loosen the 13mm silver nut a full turn or two. To loosen, use a 13mm deep socket with a long extension, ¼ inch or 3/8 inch tools will work fine for this. 5) Now to twist this shaft, use a 6mm socket on a long extension. There seems to be a low and high position, anything in the middle seems too hard to get it to stay in position. Tighten the lock nut, check the tilt with the cable, install the main screen with two torx screws. 6) Done!

Think I blew a fuse when I was jump starting my battery. Speedometer, horn & turn signals dont work. Replaced the battery but that didn't resolve the problem. Is there a fuse box anywhere? I checked...

Can't remove the top to get to the motor


2 of the 4 fasteners on my Genie were TORX head screws with the little round 'blocking post' in the opening.
I acquired a set of TORX drivers which have a hollow center to accomodate these particular fasteners. (Maybe the tools came from Harbour Freight)
The REAL problem is that a new motor seems to cost 2 or 3 times the price of a new wet/dry vac.
Good luck

Pls describe the size and type of security screw on tomtom RIDER


I have tomtom rider 1.
There are 3 sizes of Torx screws; 3 sets of 2 screws each.
The largest is at the top back. I watched a fellow on YouTube take the back off. That was very helpful.
Someone called that T6 screw. I found a little set of security torx drivers for this.
The 2 bottom corner screws are smaller and then inside that on each side of the door are 2 more (smaller size but longer) screws.
Then carefully take the back off. There are wires connecting the back to the main board.
Take the card out before you try to take the back off.
Hope it works ok for you.
