Meade LX80 Disassembly

Recommended Posts


Our societies LX80 (bought before I became involved !) seems to have dropped its Altitude drive - motor runs but worm drive does not rotate - so probably the gearing. I am trying to take it apart to see if I can resolve the problem. I've removed the cover but am not able to remove the drive and gears bracket - undid the two allen bolts and one inside the battery compartment but no movement whatsoever. Looked online for any disassembly instructions but not found any.

Hopefully photo attached ...

Any help appreciated.
