Hi!

Try not to laugh too much, but have you tried boiling the servo module in fast–boiling water for about 20 minutes in a pan of water?

Quite a number of epoxy fillings have a "Glass Transition Temperature" of about 70–80C, so if you boil the module for about 20 min, that will be above the G.T.T., after which you might find the filling material has softened somewhat, enabling you to try digging it out with a screwdriver, etc., if you're careful – it's worth a try, but I'd make sure you can source a spare unit just in case!
