I recently got my Rega RP-303 tonearm replaced by one just like it. The fingerlift on the previous one lowered at a very slow, pleasant speed, but the new one lowers much too fast to my liking, so I wanted to disassemble the fingerlift to grease the insides to slow down the speed at which it lowers the tonearm onto the record. But I can't unscrew the metal cap on the top. I have tried using both one small screwdriver in one hole and two small screwdrivers in both holes simultaneously, and it simply doesn't budge at all (I removed the cueing platform first). I used so much force that I was afraid of breaking off the entire cueing apparatus. I can pop off the plastic bottom and put in grease at the bottom of the mechanism, but that didn't slow down the lift. Judging from this video ... ... I need to take off the cap in order to grease the piston, which is what would slow down the lift, as this picture also shows: So, does anyone have any suggestions on how to either: 1: Unscrew the metal cap somehow, even though it's rock solid. 2: Grease the mechanism somehow, or do something else, to slow it down without unscrewing the metal cop. ? As for option number 2, I have already tried to cover the bottom of the mechanism in grease and push the grease as far up as possible, and put in a bit of tissue or foam in the cap, so that the piston would sink into that, and neither of those two methods worked. With the foam/tissue method, the mechanism either just went down as quickly as before if there wasn't enough tissue/foam there, or it just went down quickly and then stopped halfway, when it met the foam/tissue, because there was a bit too much tissue/foam in there. The grease is too thick to push through the two small holes, unless I heat it up I suppose. All suggestions are very welcome. With the previous tonearm it was such a pleasure to be able to simply lower the handle on the cueing mechanism and then just walk away.
