Good morning guys,

Do anyone know how to open the Beosound 3?

I have removed the 4 torx screws and lift the base but I can't go much further.

I just want to remove the grid to clean it well. I first tough that it gonna slide downwards when removing the base but it's don't come and i dont want to damage the fragile metal forcing it.

Thank you.

HI,

the grill is held in place by a tab at the lower edge in the middle. With the unit on its back, you'll see the cutout for the tab in the middle.  The grill needs to move up and away to clear the tab, then you slide the grill out the bottom.  It will be very tight and will not want to come out, but will if you are patient and have cleared the lower tab properly.

I think I've seen that tab. I'll try to play with it and keep you informed.

So, I've been playing with that tab and as Bill said "It's very tight and don't not want to come out".
At some point I was really afraid to dent or bend the grid so I gave up.

I've been cleaning the littles holes one by one with a lupe, a needle and a vacuum cleaner and sweep the whole grid with a clothe dampened in alcohol, except for the speaker area. It look like clean. 

Now waiting next week to see if it work!

Thank you.

Un grand Merci Beozip !

I'm stuck at step 2. I'll try again later if the unit is defective.
So far I dont want to dent a pretty much clean unit if any chance it's working just for some microscopic breadcrumbs.

When collecting it, they were three and I carefully inspect them to choose the best one, that would be a shame to ruin it now!

I'll keep you posted.

When it all goes wrong, and it won't work once it's been apart....may I suggest utilising it in other ways......like mine, still working had no issues since I removed all the internals.
