fixing the vu meter in ua 1176

Hey there!

Tell me something: Isn't changing the light bulbs in the ua 1176 supposed to be an easy task?

I've done it twice now, and each time I spend about 30 minutes getting the screws and the little t-shaped plates(for a lack of a better word...) into the holes of the vu meter 'frame/holder'.

There's no space in there, and the t-shaped plates sit so losely on screws that I use 2 little screwdivers to get it in (1 to hold the screw in place, and 1 to guide the plates in the holes.

Am I missing something??

Hey CLH,

You shouldn't need to remove the meter. Just slide the clamps off the top plate (away from the front panel) ... they should slide right out and give you access to the bulbs.

Hope this helps.
