Repair/replace drive electonics?

Would anyone know if it's possible to replace these boards, and if so, how I can access the board on these mounts? Thanks.

The best thing to do is purchase another mount on eBay, or call Meade Support and buy one from them. eBay will have the best price. Your old mount is worth a little bit for parts. The item in particular that is valuable is the altitude drive shaft. It is the thing that breaks when a tripod falls over and it cannot be purchased seperately.
If you were not doing anything abnormal, like hooking up a power supply backwards, but were just doing normal activities, the mount quit working, and the scope is still under warranty, call Meade Customer Support and tell them you have a defective mount. You can get a replacement.
Hope this helps,
