I don't know where and if you could find the instruction, I have used only the exploded view showed in the Service Manual of the HP-97 and I tried to do it.
These are the parts of the printer, disassembled:
Disassemble the printer is not particularly difficult, you must pay attention to the thermal-head flat cable.
The tools do you need are a exacto knife and a hacksaw blade for the groove; it is not necessary to use adhesives to fix the o-ring.
Sure, it takes a lot of patience and attention. Before making this type of job, I have always completely dismantled printers to be able to clean and lubricate better.
Regards and thank you for your interest.
