Default Removing magents

I Have 2 p2k2's with broken magnets and was wanting to take one out of 1 can and put in the other. What can be used to get the magnet out of the can? Also how should it be put back in the can? Thanks for any help. Brad

If there are no plastic parts in the bell, try acetone first (dissolves cyanoacrylate superglue and some other glues without harming much else), then try solvents for plastic (be VERY careful with these if there's anything plastic or silicon in the endbell that you can't take out). Lots of adhesives are thickened with some type of plastic, so if you break that down, the rest of the glue will break more easily.

I recommend superglue to reattach the motor. If there's a flat polished piece to place the magnet, use normal superglue. If the area or the magnet is rougher or doesn't fit perfectly flat, use gap-filling.

I'm not sure it would matter, but it would probably be a good idea to keep the magnets oriented the same as they came out when you put them back in. (The end closest to the endbell replaced closest to the endbell when it goes back in.) Again, I don't know if it matters but it wouldn't hurt.
