    Is there a way to safely remove silver side of pearl?

    Advertisement



    Hello Everyone!

    Hope everyone had a fun and safe new year. This is my first post on these forums! Yay! Everyone seems so nice in their replies so I had to join.

    But, last night in the midst of my drunken revelry, got some sort of crumbs in the crack between the silver side plate and my beautiful pearl! I was able to get some of them out but I can tell that there is still some crumbs in there. Is there any way to remove the side without damaging anthing so I can clean them out....

    Thanks for any replies!

    Welcome to pinstack. I would suggest getting one of those air can dusters and blowing it into the cracks.

    jenaroni, Welcome to PinStack.

    I agree with cp, there have been reports of damaging the clips on them when disassembling a Pearl.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    Take a thin piece of paper and slid it in the groove, that's what I've done and it gets the gunk out fine.

    I have taken apart a few pearls... there is really no clip or latch holding the sides togiether..... it is actual screws that are holding the sides... so do not snap or try and pull them off. You need to unscrew the top two screws in the back and then pop off the bottom where you will see more screws.... once the screws are out, the sides will fall off... hope this helps.

    i suggest once a month to take it apart and do a thorough canned air blow out of the inside and the outside. That is what i do.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Thanks for all the replies! I tried the paper thing but I used a business card cuz its stronger! It helped a little bit I might have to unscrew it cuz its wedged in there pretty snug! Like a pebble in the bottom of your shoe

    I used a thin thin pin to get in there to clean everything and business cards in the past. It works pretty good.

    If you have unscrewed the screws in the back, what did you use? I've tried using a set of hex keys and none of them fit...they were too small and too big....Is there something else I can use to unscrew it?

    you can use just a regular flat head screw driver, ( think thats the name of it. looking from the top its like this | ) and at the right angle you can get in there and unscrew it

    Re: Is there a way to safely remove silver side of pearl?

    i have forever been taking things apart.

    A while ago i bought some really good small tools....

    There is a tool you can buy from home depot, it is a screw driver with bits in the handle....

    for this particular screw and most screws from oem's you need the

    Husky hd-74502 s

    that has has the torx bits... i believe they are called.

    use the right tool so you don't strip the screws!
