Hi,

A question which might look stupid but I am stuck ....

I have removed the coffin and metallic ramps from the playfield. But I have a problem to remove the main plastic ramp as the top of this ramp is inserted in, and blocked by the black wooden board which is vertical and attached to the playfield.

Do I have to remove this board or can I remove the ramp in another way ?

thanks

The ramp is slid back into the wodden board. If you have properly removed all screws from the playfield, you should be able to gently pull it forward and remove it from the wood panel.

Do I need to remove all other parts before removing this one ? The edges of the ramp are blocked by other plastic parts, left and right.

I think so.

Yes did, now I manage to remove,not very gently , the ramp. It is a nightmare before you can access GI bulbs on the playfield ... Thanks

You can remove the GI bulbs from underneath the Playfield by removing the the screw holding the socket in place

Hey man, I did the same damn thing to my Dracula when I first got it. Stripped her down bear on top to change the bulbs. Untill finally someone said, "Hey you know, you could just change the bulbs underneath the playfield" Oh well, I learned alot from it.

Take advantage of your small mistake and completely clean both sides of the ramp and the playfield under the ramp. The upper playfield area is very difficult to clean when everything is in place. You've just given yourself a golden opportunity to get all that clean.

Blowing out the switch matrix while installing an LED kit is a huge and expensive mistake. Your small mistake will turn out to be beneficial.

Thank you all, I did it, the upper playfield wood is almost "as new", next I will polish the ramps. I still have another problem, but I will open a new post.

When your old, dusty pin is cleaned and polished, I looks really great !!!

Actually there are 2 bulbs under the ramp entrance that cant be done from bottom and only if the ramp is removed

Can the graveyard be removed without taking the ramp out?

Regarding the graveyard, the main ramp must be removed first. The graveyard decor is screwed on it
