When using the gauge on your saw it is off on the 45 degree cut? If so you might have to use a tri Square every time you want to cut a 45. Sometimes the lock gauge for the 45 angle may be off some. When you put a tri square on the board you cut it is not a true 45 even though the saw says it is?

Clean the area where the guard attaches to the hub assy. It is a snap ring that is holding the guard on. You will need to either use a pick or a small flathead screw driver in order to remove it. There should be a little tab that you will be able to work out. Look around the entire perimeter of the hub to locate it. You may need some extra light to see it. Stick the pick or small flathead behind the tab from the right. Work the tab out and above the hub. Now you can work your pick or scredriver around the perimeter to remove the ring. Install it in a similar fashion but use the flathead to guide the ring back into the groove, working it around the opposite way.

Testimonial: "Got it. Thanks"
it is a retaining ring and you need a special pair of pliers to remove this. If the guard is sticking remove the blade and lube and try and blow out with compressed air, if other let me know and I will try and help.

there should be a hole in the housing towards the back of the saw, you can go to Makitatools.com and download a breakdown for this tool.
