Assembling the Left Hip Joint

Steps 1-2

Retrieve your Left Thigh assembly from the previous issue. Fit the Inner Casing for Hip Joint (flat surface up) around the posts in this opening of the Left Thigh, as shown:

Step 3

Fit the Hip Joint down into the opening, as shown:

Step 4-6

Retrieve your T-800 Endoskeleton. As we did with the right leg, bring this Left Thigh assembly with Hip Joint up to the Left Hip Socket on the pelvis. Rotate the Hip Joint until its slots latch over the tabs inside the socket, then secure it into place with one (1) PM 3×8 mm screw.

Fit the Outer Casing for Hip Joint (flat surface in) around the posts in the opening of the Left Thigh, as shown:

Step 8

Fit the metal Domed Cap for Hip Joint around the same posts in the opening of the Left Thigh, as shown:

Step 9

Fit the metal Outer Cap for Hip Joint around the same posts in the opening of the Left Thigh and secure it in place with four (4) PM 2×18 mm screws:
