Help!
Servo removal

Hi all, just bought a Onyx, the left tip ail servo has a strep gear, looking the bay I can see that the servo was glued in without any covering, how can I take the servo out without damaging the skin?
Thx
Ben

Another method is to use a piece of dowel or rod from the root end and place it against the servo, a decent tap with a hammer on the end of the rod should be enough to loosen the bond.
