I want to see if there is water damage to the board, I was told by Becker USA there are two clips you push in at either end of the amp and then lever it up and the lid part with the fan just swings up and out.
At the time I hadnt seen a pic of the Amp.
Do you think he meant to push in the clips at Point A. ( two tabs in Red ).

I assume the three tabs marked B in yellow are just to guide in the lid.
And the 4 indented points marked C in Blue are just spring tensioned sucuring points.

I assume you just push in tab A and lever that corner off with a flat screw driver and then do the other side, and hopefully it just swings up and out oer the green arked motion?

Be grateful to anyone like Alex, or Simon who have done this.

As it has to be done on a dry day outside, just would like to be sure so it can all be taken out and put back in one session. Before it starts raining again :(

Not done it but that would be what I would try.

Thanks thought it would be sensible to see what I am dealing with ref possible water ingress first.
Checked the roof drain tubes today. Yes the tray was slightly wet but the headliner is bone dry and water poured in the roof tray, drains straight out onto the floor .. obviously through the 4 drain tubes.
I cant get at the rear drain holes , but can just see them and they look clean.
