Thanks for the feedback!

I don't think that is sold separately as it seems that "little black piece" is soldered into the modulator's main circuit board. if you pull it out.... which i did, you will see that you will risk keeping a good connection after you try wedging it back in...(Not a good idea)

If you ruin it like I did there is a way to bypass it. So stay tuned and I'll post that method soon.

really, thats odd. I was speaking about this fix with my mechanic last week. He had a spare modulator half and he pulled out that black piece without an issue.....hmmm, maybe that wasn't the best idea.

This is what it looks like

and this is where it connects to.

You can see the circuit board and the two holes the prongs go into.... i would hate to do this job only to have that part end up having a bad connection.

You can also see some oxidation....

Very nice write up. It's good to see some real tech on the board without shotgunning parts until it's fixed.
We need more of this.

Why can't you get parts? I didn't buy anything! I just used the kitchen steak knife to cut the SVS circuit board and soldering flux and a soldering iron. that's all you really need apart from your very basic tools.

Unless you NEED brand new SVS or seals... I'm sure it is not expensive to send those down there...

;) It's for all your hard work and inspiration.
Well I hate people getting discouraged and getting rid of a classic car all due to little nuances like the 3 amigos. Plus it's because of the forum(s) that I have been able to make a little something on the weekends fixing rovers. It's just fair to give back.

That and I don't want to see this question asked ever again.. lol j/k...

I appreciate that!

People should have to spend a week on this forum prior to buying a DII.
