Has anyone got a diagram of the order in which to remove and replace the keys on a boehm flute ?

Best method:
1 Thumb keys
2 LH keys
3 RH keys
4 Double G key
5 Trills
6 G#

Reassembly the reverse. On some instruments the G key can be replaced after the LH keys - this makes it easier to regulate a flute with split E.

Number one rule - always return the pivot screws & rods to their original places or you can end up with binding or sloppy keys.

Thank you for the advice. I need to clean the toneholes on my flute. I have stripped soprano clarinets many times with the help of a diagram I copied from a book on clarinet repair.
