    Thanks,
    Angelo

    Long side does not matter, short side you can pull it without locking but the locking collar can fall down making reassembly very difficult.

    you can remove the actuator and lock it by hand, exactly how it is done depends on if it is front or rear

    as for birf reassembly see the last pic in post # 73 of the birf FAQ it shows the orientation of both the cage and star.

    disabled? could you lock it manually with the 9V battery on the actuator or is the actuator not firing?

    So the long side doesn't matter if it is locked or unlocked? just double checking. I didn't know you could do it by hand and I'll have to try this.

    thanks for the link to the picture thats what I needed.

    The actuator is firing. I don't have the rear axle with the E-locker installed yet so I never pluged in the front E-locker or the computer to control the lockers.

    thanks

    The front doesn't need to be locked, the rear needs be locked to remove/replace the short side.

    agreed

    Agreed, the front locker allows the either axle to be removed w/o the coupler falling. The rear locker however, can fall and becomes difficult to realign.
