03_Torx Bolts.jpg (3 of 11)

The Torx bolts had some white corrosion products in the threads near the bolt heads. It's been cleaned away with a wire brush in this picture. Also seen in the threads was a brittle yellow substance which fell off when I cleaned the bolts. I decided this substance was a thread locking compound (which explains why the bolts had so much drag when I removed them), so used some Loctite when I re-installed the switch.
