    Disassembling the jack is pretty straight forward. I would recommend using JIS drivers for the later jacks with Phillips headed screws. One thing that has been mentioned but not documented is the retainer clip that prevents the screw top from coming out. In the parts picture, it is the clip above the ball bearings. Forcing the screw past the stop is the easiest way; however, it can also be removed through the base if you have the time.
