I have the .PDF file from remington for disassembling your shaver for you. Also this model is known for poor battery life and I recommend replacing the NiCd batteries with Lithium Ion batteries of the same size. This will give you much more shave time and 10 time the number of recharge cycles. Post me an E-mail address where you want me to sent the instructions to you or you can just E-mail me and request the instructions and I will attach the .PDF to my reply letter ( If you enclose your number I will call you for free and walk you through the process.
I hope you find this information valuable. If you do please take the time to rate this a FixYa. If you ever need my help again post it here and I will be notified of your need for further assistance by E-mail. I do this for a hobby so there will never be a charge.

    Hi, I sent your PDF file to you a minute ago. If you do not have the adobe reader you can download it free from adobe here:

    Cut and paste this link in the address bar of your browser and fill in your info. Download and install the reader for free. You can fill it in with junk if you do not want to be contacted by adobe begging you to buy things down the road. Make sure the fake e-mail address follows the right format, like: Thats what I always do so my E-mail inbox is not full of trash. Do this for anything that asks you for your E-mail address except things that require you to actually respond to the e-mail to verify. In that case make up a throw away yahoo E-mail address. Just a nother free tip. Hope this helps you, If you need anything else feel free to ask as always,
