To repair anything inside of the ball head, you need to open the bottom unit. This video shows on a CB-43 how to open the bottom unit. The difference to smaller or bigger ball heads are, they have less or more screws than the showed CB-43. The rest of it is the same.
The first video shows you how to find the recess in the Teflon plate which is under the bottoms cap and to match the hole in the cap with the teflon plates recess.
The caps hole and the recess must become to match. If they are matching, you need to turn the cap and the plate by using any appropriate tool. The cap and the plate must become turned at the same time. Turn them, till you find the first screw head. Open the screw and remove her fully. Then turn again till you find the next screw. Retunr this step, till you have found and open all screws. Than you can remove the bottom unit. This will be shown in the next video.
If you had found the screw head, turn the screw with a torx screw driver, till you have open and removed all screws. Than you can remove the bottom unit from the housing and you get the view inside your ball head.
