Question
I have a D-170 series Wurlitzer organ. I need to move it to lay new carpet. How do I detach the pedalboard please?

Answer
Hello Jonny,  The D170 has a 25 note pedalboard which does need to be removed before moving the console.  Start by lifting the front of the pedalboard upward close to the console.  This unhooks the pedalboard so you can pull it away from the console. It is sometimes easier if there are two people lifting the pedalboard near the console end (one on each side).  In any case, do not lift at the back of the pedalboard (farthest from the console) because it will keep the pedalboard hooked in place.
