Removing this mirror and putting it back the way it's supposed to SHOULD be attempted by Canon,instead of ripping me off.
They haven't ripped you off. You didn't agree to the repair. You had decided to get it done locally in Burkina Faso because you knew someone.
It would be fair for them to say "we'll attempt to remove the current mirror (even if it breaks) and put it back (or if it breaks, put your spare mirror back), but if anything should go wrong,as far as the MIRROR BOX IS CONCERNED, we should not be held responsible".
Companies that tried generosity like that have gotten sued in the past so they don't any more.
That is what I would like. At least I stand a fighting chance, instead of handing them over the value of the body for a damn mirror box...
I mean is it really rocket science to remove that mirror from there? we're in 2013, not 1900....
No, it is not rocket science, but nor is it an everyday kitchen table repair, ... otherwise you would have ordered the replacement mirror box and done it yourself already.
Surely a skilled man whith the right tools should be able to pull this off...
Since you have to ask that question, I can be sure that you are not sufficiently skilled with the right tools.
Can you tell me what needs to come off the camera for 'safe work" with the mirror? should I dis-assemble the whole body? (to avoid damaging the sensor & stuff) ?
Since you need to ask, take it to the Burkina man you know who can do it.
