Help with TE balltop removal


I tried searching to forums but i couldn’t find how to take the ball top off my MVC2 TE without taking the bottom panel off. I want to remove the shaft cover and dust cover and change the dust cover. Is there a way to do this without taking the bottom panel off?


Take the top panel off.


and then? I have it off


look at the bottom of the shaft on the stick, there is a big crevasse that has room for a flathead screwdriver. put a flathead in there and grip firmly and then righty-tighty lefty-loosy on the balltop on the other side of the shaft


got it thank you very much!
