Hi Longshot, how about some photos of the rear.

Wonder if the chrome Bezel on the front, turns slightly to release. If so maybe some fixing tags are visible where its rear edge meets the Orange case.

Regards - Mike

I unscrewed the circular white cover and was able to prod the exposed cogwheel into action but it wouldn't keep going..the motor unit seems to be riveted together
