Question about Makita Saws
I installed it by looking at the parts pictures in the manual and experimenting. Thanks for the try at helping me.

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.

If you look on the left side of the saw near where you see that it pivots to go up and down. You will see some type of knob that you can pull out...you will need to push down on the saw handle to allow this to happen.
Hope this helps, RSMITH972278 P.S. PLEASE RATE MY ASSISTANCE

Testimonial: "thanks, got it working."
Mastercraft's help line is 1-800-689-9928. However this saw is no longer in production and parts are available only until stock is depleted. It was supplied by an european company called WMH Tool Group that apparently doesn't supply CTC any longer.
