Need Help & Guide to disassemble Air Attack Optimus Primal

Postby Darkclyde » Fri May 07, 2010 4:14 am

Guys, could anyone help me for information how to disassemble Air Attack Optimus Primal?

I bought Optimus Primal on discount, the battery was dead so I want to change the battery

BUT the compartment on the back, one of the screw are badly worn out, that means using philip screwdriver is no go, because it can't grip the screw (loose)

So I force the compartment to open on one side and put the battery on

PRoblem is that the back area near the compartment with the worn out screw develops a crack

I want to open / dissasembled it so that I can apply power glue and offcourse to change the worn out screw as well

Can anybody help me to guide maybe with pictures?

Much appreciated and thank you for reading these

No feedback so I guess I push my luck and fixing it

thank goodness that the upper torso is not really hard to open, no mechanical issues excepts for few spring that must be reset (for the back rocket booster)

applying super glue to the broken part also is not really much of a pain, even if residue came after gluing it will not damage the paint job, only leave slightly glossy layer

problem is now to find screw small enough (in diameter and length) to replace the worn out one

overall it's good


Thank you for reading these and if you also have same problem maybe I can help you

Best Regards,
