Take the pad off and the pin retainer and the jack comes out thru the top. Had mine out after the dealer tech messed up installing it. Easy to do, takes about 5 min. including stripping the stuff off the outside.

Last I heard OP had retracted it manually and hit a hard spot but it went on past that point, then extended it and hit the same spot which the motor wouldn't go, got it to go past manually and then motor worked. Was going to take the jack out and have a look.

Hope it didn't fall on him!
I believe one of the tubes are to long.
Either primary or secondary

Don't think so, just a bad spot in the acme screw. Probably a pc of debris got in it and burred the thread. Pretty easy to fix when he gets it out. Could be a ding in one of the tubes too. Little harder to fix unless it is the secondary tube which can be removed and fixed. If it is the stationary one, may have to just drill out the bad spot.

Nope, I'm good . Been very busy so I haven't been online much but was browsing around yesterday and seen I kinda left the thread hanging.... I apologize.

I still have a issue with it; the system runs smooth up and down but there is damage to the motor/gear box and will just clatter if you retract the legs all the way in and stop just before it strains, have to hand crank it about two turns and its good to go after that.
