According to the tutorials there is a screw for the housing that is in the way. There should be 2 torx screws apparently but I think mines been off before as the lower part is broken. For the top 'hidden' screw I cannot access I have phoetus hands and a nano torx driver. How the hell does anyone access this??

On one tutorial the guy took the top screw out behind this housing (which is accessible) but then found it was meant to be the lower screw which I directly behind this.

Well done bro. This was one of the first things I did when I got my 46. It should be a 20 minute job but it took me about 3 hours because of that one Torx screw you can barely get at.

I think the issue being that the steering collum etc is located on the right, whereas European cars have their steering collum on the left. If it was a European car the FSR would be a great deal easier to get at. I must've smacked my head and my hand about 100 times when doing this job.

Lol, once I realised there was a little channel leading to the screw I put the socket with torx bit inside and just ran it forward till it located the screw. So I done it blind. If I was to do it all again it wouldn't take long 'in theory'.

Anyhow the Radio is because I flew RC helicopters for 10 years. No longer fly them now. Still have them though.
