Braun quartz ladies watch, hands fell off

Question

I have a ladies Braun quartz fashion watch that I have replaced the battery on before.  This time, when I popped off the back, something happened and two of the hands popped off too.  Ugh!

How do I get the movement and stem out so that I press the hands back on?  I can't see an obvious stem release button.  

Thanks in advance

Look for a small dimple or place on the plastic yoke where you can push with a tweezer. You might have to pull the stem out to the setting position to see it. Just for reference, this is a Miyota 5Y20 movement.

Yea the crown should be all the way pulled and that's where a button/lever should be.

It's possible that you managed to pull the movement away from the movement and the dial pushed against the hands and, therefore, 2 fell off.

skipwilliams, I'm having the same problem. Were you able to remove the crystal to position those hands back in place?

You are directing to a member which had posted once only and joined just because of the issue, I suppose that is the same as you.

After removing the stem replace back and the crystal is removed with a 10cc syringe.
