I believe set screws through backside of the bottom bracket.

It’s a two piece unit first you wanna remove the four nuts that hold the mechanical indicator, then you remove the four nuts that hold the faceplate

They are a pain in da azz and even worse putting them back together.

Do you see the little pin holes in the pointers and little square that they sit in?? You have to unbend paperclips and put them through the holes to keep them together when you re install.

Our plan was to place pointers back in white holders…and place top cover back over placing each pointer into each respective slot. Then try to put the nuts back on. Is there a trick to doing this. What I just said is likely easier said than done.

I just pulled mine out and was astonished at how crappy of a design it is and how utterly difficult to remove it was. If the new digitals weren't so ungodly expensive, I would be converting.

Hopefully Gaffrig just sells the lens and card if you call them, because they don't list any individual parts for sale on their website, otherwise I'm having to buy a whole new one haha (which wouldn't surprise me one bit these days).
