Oh, you got it off. I bet you can put it back on again.
It's much easier if you take the blade off first. Then you'll be able to reach inside when you need to. Be patient, don't force it, and make sure when you get the spring reconnected properly that the guard moves freely out of the way when you chop, and returns when you raise the saw back up.
It's a bit of a trick, but I bet you can manage it..It's been awhile, but it seems to me there's a way to get the bolt started before you engage the tension on the spring...I'd have to have it in my hands to say exactly.
Here's a link to the exploded parts view at the Makita site, just in case. And it might help to have an extra pair of hands, or a piece of duct tape to hold the guard in place when you go to put the blade back on.

Relace the switch.
I am presuming the lock button has not been inadvertently pressed ... Check that first.
The condition you deacrive is dangerous. Please fix it before you use it any more.
If you require additional assistance, let me know.
Otherwise, check RepairClonic.com for parts and technnical instruction from their crack crew.
Thanks for the opportunity to lend you a hand
