When removing the case - undo the two screws on the front of the case and pull them towards you as far as they will go.  The case then opens on the hinges and the screws do not foul any components or wiring.  When closing the case also ensure that the screws are fully withdrawn.


This is an internal view of the telephone.
It has been converted to plug and socket and the capacitor, which would normally be the right of the bell ringer,
has been removed (it is not actually required).
