View Full Version : Rupes backing plate won't come off

Just got my rupes 15 in on Tuesday and got the washer mod and thought it was going to be easy to take the backing plate off, wrong it will not come off I even try to hold the BP and nothing still. Anyone else had this problem ?

use a socket wrench to get it off. The allen key did nothing for me either the first time I had to take the BP off.

First times a little sticky but it can be done:iagree: Use a ratchet with a socket and "bump" the ratchet rather than applying weight. It'll break free.

Allen Key worked for me, you will need to brace it like mad to get the BP off.

Same thing happened to me when I got my 21 and tried to switch it to the 15 inch backing plate. It just needs a good strong tug. This didn't happen to me, but I imagine it can be possible of stripping the screw. Other than that I can now switch them easily. So it seems to be just a one time thing.
