Has anyone ever removed the main board in a Cry Baby 535Q? I have a dead capacitor that I want to replace, but can't figure out how to get the board out.

The problem is that the geared potentiometer is attached to a board that is attached at right angles to the main board - it would lift out if it wasn't for the two small pots for adjusting sweep range and gain.

I just can't figure out how to get the board out without breaking something. I've spent more than an hour Googling it, but can't find anything.

Bumping this - anyone ever tried it?

If not, has anyone had experience of getting a luthier/guitar store to repair a pedal? Any idea what they might charge?
