I was recently given a Beogram RX. It's in good condition and works, but the dust cover was not attached. It appears to have all of the parts, but I can't manage to get it assembled. I've searched the forums some, but am not having much luck on finding anything specific to RX. Was wondering if anyone can help guide me through the reassembly process? Here are some photos of what I'm looking at:

Dust Cover Parts... Mounting brackets, screws, clips, etc. Not quite sure what the two silver metal pieces in the lower left are for or where they go.

Here assembled from the back

Here torsion spring position

As I see it you will have to assemple the cover and back plate, with the 3 plastic pieces, the 3 screws and washers, in open position, before attaching the whole to the deck, with the 3 steel plates and screws, the 2 chromed pieces must be guide pieces for the torsion spring where the torsion spring make contact with the back plate when opening and closing the cover, probably in the corners of the back plate.

This was very helpful... I'm still confused though on how to connect the tension spring to the plastic cover... 

I have recently acquired a Beogram 1900 from my dad and unfortunately the service manual online is not clearing up my confusion on how to put the dust cover back together - primarily I'm very confused on how the long metal piece (which seems to be the piece to act as a torsion spring from what I'm reading on here?) fits into the main cover.  Do the side pieces somehow go into the cover or where do they end up? 

- this is my first Beogram and first quality turntable so I'm very excited but also very green so any help is appreciated.

I also had to refit the spring and it’s quite fussy job to do for sure!!!

I did some repair to one hinge by the tonearm side, used a material called plastifix :

If I suss out how to insert pics here I’ll do it, and I can try to explain how the parts reassemble. If you imagine the spring is twisted to push the hinge open, or to provide assistance against the weight of the lid, that’s how it’s working. So assemble backplate to lid in

Open position and there’s already 180 degree twist in the spring. Fit the ends with the middle sticking up, then try to fit the middle cleat in place while pushing the spring down against the backplate with the cleat . Make sure all the parts are in place, and definitely the end hinges are both assembled or you will have a likelihood of breaking a hinge - that’s what happened to mine... the guy I bought it from thought he’d remove and clean it on the day I was travelling to him to collect it... just removed screws one by one until TWANG and the hinge snapped  I did quite a nice repair I was going to share pics of....

 

wow its it’s really not straightforward to insert pics here... using safari/ iPhone 6s+

 

ill have and to come back on the pc I think...
