    I have a V9 PS2 and just got my FlipTop. It went on without a problem (it had the little white disc in the lid and I didn’t have to take anything off my PS2 lid and put on my fliptop). There was 1 big screw that came with it, I did not see where it would go so I don’t think I need it.

    It works, kind of noisy when it starts up a spin, is this normal? Sort of like a grinding / scraping noise for a few seconds then it stops.

    Any special way to do this? Just pry it out with a screwdriver?

    i had the same problem, turns out i tightned the scews to much. Check out your ps2 and just loosen them a little bit and it should stop that noise. hope this works for you.

    Same with me. I swapped the original whit disc, same thing. Loosening the screws helped . When I use a little force and pull the cover forward slightly the grinding disappears. Very little noise now if I don't load discs with the tray and use only the flip top.
