OEM Top case 2 small - wont open !
« on: March 18, 2018, 10:24:52 PM »
Hi
Has anyone had there top case lid jam shut and won't open?
Key still works handle to lock on/off to rack.
Anyone know of a way of opening it without using a hammer?
I've tried squeezing the lid down and gently banging/shaking it...

Mine opens easily with just pushing the button...I assume you're pushing the lid down and then simultaneously pushing the button..??

Maybe something in the mechanism has let go inside or has jammed the lock from inside..??

Mine has a red flap - pull to open (the locking / carrying handle fits around the flap).  Photo below.
Please does anyone have a picture of the inside and shows how the hooks lock the lid down ?

It's the same as mine, just push the button....the lock where the key goes in.....just push it in hard and the red handle will flip out..! Unless it's locked of course..!

It must be my age....
I've had this top case for over a year and used it over 100 times.
I was just turning the key and pulling on the red flap... I had forgot to push in the key barrel...

Thanks and sorry for waisting everyones time with this...

P.S. must remember to phone and cancel workshop visit... :)
