Default Dansette Capri Record Player Service Sheets Required

Hello All
I’ve recently acquired a Dansette Capri Record Player that requires repair.
Paul’s excellent site draws a blank when searching for service data sheets for valve amplifier versions.
I’m sure that it will be the same or similar to other players of the same era. I’ve yet to work out how to get the moulded front off to release the transit clips and access the (valve) amplifier - the motor board on this model isn’t removable so it would seem to be front access only.
The forward most valve is a UCL82.
Can anybody provide service data on this model please to avoid me reverse engineering it (or a steer towards where I should be looking top right)?
It may be that a valve amp has been retro fitted as there is a distinct lack of vents.
I find this player very attractive in navy blue and cream and look forward to repairing it.
Thanks in anticipation, Tim

You're probably right, it's not likely to vary much from the 14-2 (UCL83)

Thanks very much for your input both.
I’ll use the Bermuda as a starting point and go from there.

Thought that this is the the link to service info from the top right link to the parent site; https://www.service-data.com/product...03/1490/a11103 All I did was search for 'Capri', sereral returns but the first one appears to be the requested Dansette.

I'm afraid that's the service manual for a transistor radio. The name "Capri" was applied to several different products.

Thanks Dave but I’d already established what Graham has confirmed before posting.

The motor board is fixed, but don't you get to the internals by just removing the underside board?

You’re right of course, thanks Edward
I’d assumed it was akin to HF35/45 etc
