    Hello,

    [Repost here as suggested by Colin]

    Just unboxed my FW8G-ALUMA and trying to install on the camera. Hoping for clear skies.

    I am unable to remove the filter wheel's front plate and lift it off the base plate. I have removed the four 4-40 cap screws.
    Is there a FW8G-ALUMA specific instruction? Am I missing something?

    Regards,
    -Kalpesh

    I've asked my colleague @Tim to chime in.
    Am wondering if it is just stuck due to paint.
    Be very careful as the long 4-40 screws hold the whole body together, all the way to the fan assembly on the bottom.

    Hello Colin, Tim,

    Thanks for confirming that the four screws are the only ones.

    I was able to use my iphone battery replacement tool and pry it open albeit with some force.

    We are good for now.

    Thanks,
    -Kalpesh
