Hi guys,

 

The right side of my CAL recently stopped working and I was wondering about opening it up and checking for the trouble. The problem is, I have no idea about how to do it.

 

I've figured out that it is wiring problem as it crackles and starts playing (intermittently) if I adjust it at the rubber tip outlet part of the can. So possibly a loose wiring or something. I tried to remove the ear pad, but so far I've been utterly unsuccessful. 

 

Could any of you please let me know how to open up the can? Is it supposed to be removed by just pulling the leather cushion or am I supposed to rotate the plate and pull it up or something? I tried both and it is just too damn tight and nothing happened. Since I didn't want to ruin the cushions or worse, damage the drive, I didn't proceed further.

 

If someone could help with a detailed how to tutorial, I'd be very thankful. Also, what are the best replacement ear pads for Cal? I apologize if I am posting at the wrong thread. If so, please do redirect me to the right section. Thanks.
