Maslow4 - Tips/Concerns when removing router spindle from assembled machine?

My spindle lock button seems to have self-destructed (It was there and then it wasn’t) and so I need to remove the router to fix it. Removing it seems straightforward, just loosen the tension clamps on the top and bottom arms and wiggle it out (after disconnecting the controller cables). I’m a little more concerned I may not be able to wiggle it back in and so thought I’d check here if anyone has done it previously?

I’ve taken mine in and out a couple times, I’ve always taken the lower clamp off completely, but now that you say it like that I think just loosening the clamps seems way smarter.

Let us know how it goes so we can all learn!

it’s a bit of a pain to keep everything aligned, but not too bad.
