I just got my MD40 delivered today (from ebay).  It grinds, is quiet, but filthy inside.  I'm trying to take it apart to clean, but can't get the top plate off (just below the courseness settings and ontop of the top burr).  Also, the top burr (and the courseness) will not turn.  There is rust/corrosion on some of the screws, so I suspect it needs some forcing, I just don't want to break anything!  

Any advice would be great!

Thanks!
Chris.

Well, so far I answered my own question, I forced the top burr off.  But can anybody remind me how the yellow/brown/black wires go?  I have them in that order going towards the front.
