[Music World] Second Digital Piano Hack

After a bit more than a year of perfect work, the dumper pedal (Yamaha Foot Pedal FC3) of my digital piano started making a very annoying noise, a squeak I had to eliminate! So, I've managed how to open the damper pedal and to oil the noisy parts.

The very first thing to do is to unscrew the screws on the bottom and to separate the metal base from the pedal.

Then you have gently to take off the main part from the plastic chassis.
Now it is possible to oil "every" moving part!
From one side...
and from the other one...

That's all! Do the reverse to reassemble the pedal.
Now it is back silent as it was last year...
