Pioneer PL-518x - Tonearm Dropping Too Fast

Post by Anth » 28 Apr 2019 07:19

Hi,

I just picked up a Pioneer PL-518x, the only problem is that the tonearm drops way too fast. After doing some research I believe I will need to replace the damping fluid that has probably dried up by now. I have already picked up some 300,000 cst fluid but cannot find a way to access the piston. I was wondering if anyone could please let me know what would be the correct way to get to the piston on this particular turntable. Any advice/guidance will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
