SOLUTION : Replace vibration pad Motorola part # 7585064U01 with Motorola part # 7585064U02, which has cutouts in the area which causes the contact problems. Only stations experiencing the diagnostic out-of-lock errors need to have this service performed.
NOTE Remove FRU module covers and remove PC board from the FRU housing paying attention to the RF connector (RCVR. INPUT) or (EXCITER OUTPUT) by removing the nut that holds the connector to the housing. The rubber vibration pad is located underneath the PC board and is held in position by two embosses in the sheet metal. It is important to orient the new pad in the same location as the old pad and use the embosses to secure the pad in position while screwing the pc board back in the FRU housing. All stations shipped after August 8, 1997 contain the new vibration pad. The pad can be obtained at no charge from the Americas Parts Division by making reference to this bulletin #.
