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"
first remove the blade and make sure tool unplugged, one end of the spring goes into a slot in the housing and the other into a hole in the lower guard. make sure guard retracts completely (you might have to use some WD40 or similar product) Let me know if you still need help

Testimonial: "Thank you. It now seems to be working fine."
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.

Had the same problem with the dewalt, either the lifter arm is bent just enough or some thing is worn just enough, we put a zip tie on the part where the saw comes up to rest and it works fine.
