Everyone has all these huge rebuilds of the actual coils and stuff, I just need to put a new plastic on the flipper....and youtube seemingly has no documentation on this?

I have the new flipper plastic, should I just pull harder to remove the old one?

What game ? It may be screwed on from the bottom.

Gottlieb's 1977 Team One white plastic typical flippers, they look like they just pop right off? but idk....most of the flipper rebuilds on youtube are literally 1 hour long and its like finding a needle in a haystack...

If it is a removable bat, and not one that is moulded to the shaft, you will have to remove the flipper bat assembly with the shaft from the machine to access the screw/s as LTG says.

Awesome. I think we all started slowly. A small repair here and there followed closely behind by, "screw it, I'll just rip the whole damn thing apart".

yea the next thing you know you will be doing airbrushing, waterslide decal touch ups and clear-coating playfields, cutting your own stencils for cab repairs etc!

This thing called Pinball gets a hold of you.
