How Do You Disassemble a Massage Chair?

If you’re reading this article then I am considering that you have found yourself in a difficult situation and want to know about massage chair disassembly.

I am writing this post to help you and in this particular post, I am going to cover the disassembly if two different chairs just two give you an idea of how you can do that on your own without hiring any professional.

So, let’s start with the disassembly of trumedic MC-2000.

Disassembly of truMedic MC-2000

Starting with the design than it is pretty good but the housing is a little bulky and if you’re planning for shifting then you have to go through the disassembling process.

The major things that need to be removed are armrests and speakers to get it to pass through the standard bedroom door or any other doorway.

There is one thing that is going to help you a lot is a screwdriver.😊

The first thing you’re going to need to remove is right and left hip side airbags—as they have no bolts or screws so you don’t need a screwdriver. Just pull them up straight and set aside.

After that disconnect the single hose. Just unzip the zipper hold back the seat cushion and unscrew the two holding screws that secure the armrest.

Then disconnect two air hoses of the armrest and LED wiring harness.

The next thing you have to do is to remove the speakers and for that first of all, unzip the zipper of the flap around the speaker.

Fold and hold the protective padding back, you’ll see a screw. Just unscrew it, tilt the speaker back, and pop the rear prong off.

Then disconnect the air hose and you’ll see a tab just push it to release the wiring harness.

Reach around to the inner portion of the armrest and press the release tab. While pushing the release tab concurrently lift the front of the armrest up and repeat that process for the other side.

First of the airbag, then the speaker, and then the armrest. And after doing this you have removed all the necessary components to roll the chair to another room and reassembled.

Disassembly of Osaki OS-4000

That same process can be used for both Osaki OS-4000 and 4500 CS. For this disassembly, the only things which are needed to be removed are shoulder panel and sidearm panel.

So, let’s get started. Before, starting let me tell you one thing during the whole process you are going to need an Allen key of size four or five.

First of all, unzip the zipper located at the lower end of the sidearm panel. Fold and hold the padding back and remove the two bolts down there and slide the panel up and set aside.

After that, you’ll see five screws just take them out using the same Allen key.

Once, you have removed these five screws unzip the zipper located on the inner side and pull the armrest up slowly. And then disconnect the two wires.

Don’t worry these both wires are labeled with a number to help in assembling later.  After doing this put the armrest aside.

Now, move to the shoulder panel. The process is pretty the same—first of all, unzip the zipper located at the lower-end.

Fold and hold the padding back, remove the black cover, it reveals four bolts, just remove them one by one using the same Allen key.

After removing the screws disconnect the air hose too and put the shoulder panel aside. Now, repeat the same process on the other side too.

Start from the armrest, unzip the padding, remove the two screws to remove the sidearm covering panel, and underneath remove five more bolts, disconnect two labeled wires, and put the armrest aside.

And for the shoulder panel, you have to repeat the same above-mentioned process.
