This top plate is correct for all Beosystem 5000 and 5500 products, and will also fit the following Bang & Olufsen models:
Finish: Lightly brushed silver anodized aluminium.
This is the top plate only. Not a complete cover.
The top plate comes readily fitted with high quality adhesive backing. Ready to fit.
Photos in the gallery show the top plate fitted on to a smoked Beogram cover base DC-001 and a clear Beogram cover base DC-002 respectively.
The old top plate is drawn off.
Remains of old tape and/or glue is removed (NEVER use acetone or similar strong solvent!).
An assistant is called in to hold two creditcards vertically at the inside of the cutout in the cover base, one near each end, to give a nice and equal apprx 1-1½ mm wide gap inside along the front edge of the cutout.
The new top plate is then placed at an angle of 45 degrees close up against the creditcards.
Center the top plate sideways and, while holding it carefully and close up against the creditcards lay it down and press it down to secure it.
See last photo.
Note: The backing adhesive is VERY strong. When the backing paper is removed, you have only one go!
It is therefore adviseable to practice a couple of times before removing the backing paper, to get a feel of the job.
