    Unscrew it, then just pry it up with a flathead.

    Re: seperating motor and basket

    Usually there are screws and you take those out, then pry the basket off of the motor. It'll take a little force since the magnetic force will probably be holding the basket in place.

    DON'T put your hand under the motor though. I learned the hard way Yanked the basket off and had a 50lb motor smash 3 fingers. . . it hurt

    Re: seperating motor and basket

    I took a block of wood and placed it on the pole piece and hit the basket. Popped right off.

    This was on a 2002-2003 resonant engineering se10

    Re: seperating motor and basket

    When I dismantled my eclipse alum. It had six screws and was also glued with the motor. Use a flathead like a chisel, put the tip directly in the joint and hit it with a hammer.

    Thats what I did. Then I found a block of would that fit. I laid the basket and motor over the block like a hat and hit the basket. It came right off.

    I didn't need the basket anymore though...
