i have to replace a fader and can't get the top off. i removed the screws on the rack ears, the two at the seam on the top, the screws on the sides holding the main board and the connections board together, and even the two around the bend underneath the main board and still there is something holding it down in the back. ??????

Jacks maybe?
The previous statement is from a guy who records his own, and other projects for fun. No money is made.

Usually on that type of mixer you want to go in through the bottom.

From the manual (found here: http://www.allen-heath.com/uk/products/ ... Wizard3162)

Remove the base - Start by removing the side
trims if fitted using a Pozi crosshead screwdriver.
Release the two M4 Pozi head pod securing screws
and rotate the connector pod to gain access to the
three M3 rear base fixing screws. Use a Torx
starhead screwdriver to remove these. Rotate the
pod again to remove the four M3 underside base
screws using the Torx driver. Carefully lift off the
base.
