okay    CMM Conponent Maintence Manuel...  IPC   illustrated Parts Catalog...IPL..Illustrated  Parts List ... and lastly WDM Wiring Diagram Manuel ..in future i will expand on such terms    ..You can purchase these directly from component manufacturer..but bevwarned they are expensive and they are control documents so be prepared to jump through many many hoops to access them höpe this helps .. OEM parts can be troublesime without these documents

Fmc face completely disassembled. Will do some cleaning of all parts before assemblying. Lots of springs were damaged and the caps were missing in places so this unit was doomed from start to work 100%.

The OEM switch has about 5mm spring and a tacticle click when pressing it. I will replace them with tacticle switches, the length of the "momentum" of the button will be shortend but the click is the same. Much like the FDS plugnplay units.

The backlight is a pieace of art (or really not due to how complex it is)
Small holders in glass that projects light and the backlight that is painted black to absorb the light and amplify it where the buttons are.

Next up will be to test some other switches then drill a pcb board where my new switches will fit in the original pinholes.

Now, thats what i am talking about!
Not 28v like spec but 24v will do!

Sooo cool to see the authentic light!
