    ETA F06.111 stem removal

    Hi everyone, I have a Tag Heuer F1 watch and the crown doesn't screw in anymore. Now before I send it into Tag Heuer, I want to see if I can fix it myself. The biggest problem is removing the stem so I can see if the threads on the crown have been pushed back perhaps. When I open the case back I see a very small hole with an arrow pointing towards it. Is this a push down release mechanism or is it some kind of unscrewing mechanism that requires a very small flat screw driver?

    Thanks
    Brad

    The little button indicated by the arrow is the release. However, pushing it with the crown screwed down won't do much.

    The crown isn't screwed down, when I do this the crown is pulled out. So it is a push down mechanism then?

    Thanks
