R4 top cover removal


New Member

Did not see a response to this question.
Was hoping someone might know the procedure for removing the top cover of my R4. I'm not worried about springs flying out of it, as it is, it's not working in program mode, so it doesn't matter. The local repair shop told me the contacts under the top cover needed to be cleaned, but their Leica repair guy retired months ago.

Please help.

Also is the R4s the same as the R4?

Thanks fellow Leica owners
