Re: D80 Focus Motor: Can a Nimwit swap it out?

The real challenge are the large ribbon connectors. Be very careful in lifting the clamping bars. Use a thin, broad tool or two curved tweezers. On reassembly clean each ribbon with alcohol and use a contact enhancer such as Stabilant 22.

Anytime a mirror cage is separated from the body shell, focus has to be checked.

Also an anti-static work mat is recommended. If not make sure you ground yourself often before touching any thing.
