Take the top and the bottom off the radio. Unplug the battery and speaker plugs found on the top unit.
There are 4 screws...2 on top and 2 on the bottom that hold 4 black tabs that are attached
to the radio.
These might be loose or missing the screws.
The tabs go thru the chassis of the radio.
Hope this helps

Subject: [FT897] How to dismantle head of the radio
The front panel on my radio seems to be loos. I planed to open the box (what i already did to install filters)to tighten the screws but after removing up an bottom panel, I didn't found the expected screws on the side on the front panel like on other radios. Any tip ? Should I remove main knob etc etc ???
