Pannier lock cylinder removal
« on: Apr 23, 2019, 10:57 PM »
Folks, I appreciate that this is an old topic and Iíve read Clive and others feedback about removing the 9 screws to give further access to remove the old locks by taking the top section off.

My question however is; how easy is it to remove the top section after all of these screws have been extracted i.e. do you need to prise it off with a screwdriver...or a special tool?  Even after removing all 9 screws, it is still awkward...I donít want to force it and break it.

Appreciate your help in advance.

Sorted now...I was just being cautious when applying the pressure to remove.

Point to note was the sticky pad that lies under the lock plate i.e. it runs the length of the flat exterior strip that the 3 small screws were removed from.
