Did JBL hide the 4th screw under the name plate?

...because they didn't expect, or want, owners to dig into these?

So they had no concern for their service people?

At one time, service centers had replacement foilcals available to them. Then the requests became overwhelming because it was easier to just tear the old foilcal off and replace it with a new one. Well guess what? Nothing lasts forever, and JBL finally made it mandatory to use a heat gun to get the original foilcal off instead. JBL did their part...

I recently bought 2 pcs 4435 foilcals from JBL Germany.

So I would say there is hope although all vintage foilcals dissapeared from the misc. parts list earlier this year.
