    Default CP200 housing change

    Can anyone provide a quick and dirty how to for changing a CP200 housing? Have a service manual but it appears to be mostly circuit diagrams. Just need to swap the old busted housing.

    Thanks!

    Remove the antenna, battery and any audio accessories
    Remove knobs by grasping firmly and pulling straight up
    Gently pry at the bottom of the case to open it up. Use a thin but broad metal object to do so. A good butter knife often works. don't be Hercules or you break it.
    Slide the radio out and disconnect the speaker connector (and possibly a mic as well)
    Move the speaker and stuff to the new case
    Reassemble

    Its really one of the easiest Moto's to work on.
