My father took apart one ages ago...the best part was when he finally
figured out how to get it open. I heard:
You need to break apart a couple of external welds (which will have to
be soldered, which requires a high-wattage iron.) Probably best to
open it inside a plastic bag or something, as stuff goes flying.
Don't attempt unless you have the patience of a saint, but you can get
in pretty deep to fix things.
