How to Open a DeWalt DW911

Updated April 17, 2017

DeWalt is one of the prominent manufacturers of electric and cordless power tools such as drills, sanders and screwdrivers. However, the company also manufactures radios. The DeWalt DW911 is a cordless job site radio. It is made of sturdy, rugged plastic and features only a radio, with no CD or tape player. If electronic components ever need to be replaced, the outer case has to be taken apart in order to get to them.

Open the battery door on the back of the radio and remove the batteries and place them on the side.

Use a screwdriver to remove the side-mounted, wraparound handles. There are two screws on each side that have to be removed.

Hand-twist the rubber antenna to the left to remove it.

Use a putty knife to pop the volume, tuner and selecter knobs.

Use a screwdriver to take out the casing screws on the top and bottom of both the rear and front of the radio and gently pull the DeWalt boombox apart to open it up.
