If you are constantly plugging and unplugging cables into your Plus III’s sync or USB port, you may want to give it a little extra protection to save wear and tear on the parts. This 3D printed reinforcement will sit right on the radio’s main board to give both ports more protection.
You can install the part yourself if you’re comfortable with minor repairs, take a look at the video below for details. Once you take the back off, take out the screw holding the board to the case. Press the reinforcement into place then use the new longer screw to hold it to the board. Replace the back cover and you’re as good as new!
If you’d rather send it in, please contact us.
One note: There is a metal hinge pin for the door that can slip down. If you are having a hard time snapping the unit back together, slide the hinge pin all the way up then try again.
