HI
What is the secret to popping off the wheel set covers on an athearn MP15? I am lubing engines today and can not get that cover to pop off.
Thanks
Bill

You're referring to the "plate" on the bottom of the truck that holds the wheelsets in, is that correct?

Sometimes there are small "lugs" on the side that secure them. You have to take a VERY small screwdriver or blade (the kind of screwdriver that comes in an "eyeglass repair kit") and GENTLY pry the covers away from what is securing them. Then they should snap off and give you access to the wheelsets inside.

Gear covers on engine bottom

Hi
No I meant the long skinny gear covers that cover the gears. The are impossible to pop off.
Thanks
