Does the top panel of an SE stick unscrew easily (without stripping)?


I need to take off the metal top panel of my SE stick (not a TE stick). From what I’ve read, the screws should come off without a problem, correct? It seems that only the TE sticks have issues with the screws/bolts becoming stripped easily.


I just took one off yesterday. The screws are pretty solid, unlike the screws pretty much everywhere else in the case.

On that note, anyone happen to know off-hand the size of the screws holding the base plate on to the rest of the case so that I can find replacements? ><


not being stripped but more like the nuts connected on the plastic for the top plate bolts can come out since all that is holding them in place is the warranty gunk
