I have one I need to repair. The element generates a signal, but the quality is atrocious after some CBer punched a bunch of holes in the diaphragm, like a salt-shaker. I have another element with a dead crystal. I am contemplating salvaging the good diaphragm from the dead element and using it to replace the damaged one. If you were able to take yours apart without destroying it, how did you detach the diaphragm from the little rod that's linked to the crystal, and the rim of the diaphragm from the plastic case? What kind of glue did you use to re-assemble it?
