Trustfire X6 Driver Removal

Hi folks. This is my first time on the forum. I have a Trustfire X6 that I would like to mod. Does anyone have any tips on getting the driver out of the heatsink? I have not had much luck so far, and I don’t want to damage the driver. Thanks in advance.

Hi and welcome on board.
E1320, an experienced member & modder have said:
“The brass button that touches the battery unscrews so grab it with pliers and unscrew it. Next jam an appropriately sized flat head screwdriver in the hole were the button screws in and pry up on the white plate going around in a circular motion until the white plastic plate pops off, go easy so you don’t crack it. Once the white plate is off there is an outer ring that holds the metal dummy plate in. Drill 3 holes at 12 4 and 8 o’clock in the dummy plate near the outer ring. Use a dent puller or sheet metal screws and some vice grips and pull up on the dummy plate until the outer ring comes loose and the dummy plate will come out and you can now reach the internals to replace the driver. As long as you didn’t damage the outer ring the dummy plate or the plastic plate you can reassemble it with no signs of tampering.”

Good luck!

Be careful with that dummy plate.. It can be the bottom of the driver – in mine it was – there was no additional plate.

Sorry to bump from the dead but I’m having problems as well. It’s like there’s some invisible retention ring. [center section inverted, plastic cover off] The brass ring that appears pressed into the aluminum at the very top, does that need to come out? Does it screw out? I tried soldering some wire onto the negative ring of the pcb to form a handle, but moderate tension will not remove the driver. The driver will rotate freely.
