Good evening, I have been having issues with my Arnold ICE 3 not running well (stalling, jerky/noisy running, etc) and I need to disassemble the motorized end car in order to investigate further. Unfortunately it is not obvious to me how to remove the shell from the chassis. The shell appears to attach to the chassis with 8 clips. On most Japanese trains I could pull the sides of the shell apart and insert guitar picks / plastic strips to keep the shell spread open. But this model has no way that I can see to pull on the sides of the shell because the chassis is in the way. And the chassis edges are painted white (very easy to scratch). Yavianice has a lot of experience with this model, so I would greatly appreciate his input. If anyone else has disassembled one before, or has some ideas, please let me know. Thank you for your help.
