Post#1 paragraph 2, I stated I was having trouble with a screw including a picture of said screw.
Post#8, I explained for the 2nd time why it was taking me more than 5 min.
post#12 clarified post#3 stating I bought the whole unit.
Post#1 paragraph 2(picture included),#8,#14 and#15 all explain why it's taking longer than 5min.
Sheesh...it makes me wonder if anyone is reading my posts at all!

Anyway,I finally wound up drilling out 2 stubborn screws(there was another one that wouldn't budge)on the inside of the door,taking way longer than 5min. I installed the whole assembly I got from Nasioc and put everything back together. The trim matches fine,the servo works and all is now one with the universe.

Final score,2 trips to the hardware store,1 purchase from Nasioc, 3 broken screwdrivers and 1 pounding headache.

All right, where is the distributor cap? I need to find the #1 plug wire to hook up my SUN machine.

That's spooky,I did just that! And I do feel better.

I should have drilled out the screws as soon as I broke the impact driver bit. I would have saved myself 21$ on the electric hammer/drill rental.
