Hi everybody,

I did'nt see anybody trying open the unit as it suppose to. I was looking for a long time and decide to open it from where I saw glue (kind of bubble surronding plastic arround solar panel). I confirme we can open it with help of a heatgun and exacto. You only have to heat the plastic (stop before it's burning) so the glue come a little soft and you can cut the glue with your exacto inch by inch. At the end you only have to remove the solar cell. Take care to not tear off the solar wire by removing the top. Now you could have acces to the motor as you want to remove it and change it

Use silicone to seal around the solar cell when closing the unit when the job is finish.
