 +====== HP Photosmart 6510 teardown =======
 +//Note: see [[hp_photosmart_6510|HP Photosmart 6510]] for the printer specs.//
 +The axis of a gear broke after having put stapled sheets of paper in the printer. It was a 15 mm long plastic rod (diam 1/8").
 +I made a hole where it broke and then bought a 1 m long replacement plastic rod (no less) with approximately the same diameter. As it was a bit wider (diam 0.4 mm), I had to enlarge the hole in the plastic base and in the gear.
 +This is the plastic part that broke. I glued the new rod (that I cut) in the hole.

 +Now, the teardown.
 +You will need T8, T9 Torx and Philips screwdrivers. Screws are highlighted in yellow in the following pictures.
 +Open the printer, detach the scanner and remove the 8 screws :

 +Remove the cables (screen, speaker) and the rollers cover.
 +To reach the gear, you will have to remove the cartridge carrier and the stabilizer bar (2 screws on the left and two screws on the right) :
