Good day. I am new to this forum. Can i ask whoever is an expert regarding my problem. The chorme part on the bottom of the hilt of my darth vader force fx lightsaber faded and showed the yellow plastic underneath. Is there a way to remove this part so i could repaint it? Thank you so much for any intelligent input and insights.

As i can see, i guess there are 2 pins that hold the part in place. I see this inside the hilt where you put the batteries. Please help. So i could repaint that part. Thank you so much.

I wish it was real metal (stainless or aluminum) so there is no problem about fading color (chrome). Has anyone encountered this problem? Thank you for any input.

The two pins are mounted under the rubber grips. You'll need to pry up those two grips to access them. Work gently as you'll want to keep those grips.
I'm not sure if they're screws or pins, but if they're screws, that should expose the heads. If they're pins they'll need to be either punched into the hilt, or out from the inside.

Thats about as helpful as I can be, as I haven't removed this part on mine.
