In order to re-wire something, dis-assembly should proceed carefully. I recommend that you carefully inspect the wires and look over what you have. Take photos each step of the way. Having photos to refer to helps immeasurably when you are trying to put things back together.
First carefully unscrew the screws and catch the nut as the screw is loosened. I do this over my magnetic tray so I don’t lose that itsy bitsy nut. I then place these parts in the tray for safe keeping. Separate the two parts and place the top part with the screws.
|This is the nut. It is very very small|
Then carefully inspect the wiring on the inside. What a nice tidy job. Naturally, it was done by a professional. Notice the two wires on the right are knotted together. I hope to replicate that with the new wire. These brass connectors lift out of this half of the terminal pin. Notice how they nestle right in the pin? That is the only way they go back.
I pulled this wiring a part a bit more to study it and mark it with color coded electrical tape. I also marked the terminal end accordingly. Notice the bare wire on the middle (white tape) lead. YIKES. That insulation was so fragile, it just flaked right off.
Here you can see how the "yellow" leads are soldered together.
And then put the whole thing back together and tucked away, labeled, until I need it for the new wires.
Then I took this photo to document what went where. I had hoped to actually do some wiring today but I don't have enough wire. I have ordered some wire which will not be here for a week or so. Until then I tucked this project away.
