    For those who never convert it to a bed the under table locking lever is a pain so why not remove it?

    First remove the table top by removing the 8 screws underneath, two from each of these

    remove the four screws connecting the plastic leg cover to the table steel base (two shown removed)

    Now we have the 17mm nyloc pivot nut and washer to remove (if your table was ever too tight to rotate you can adjust it with this)

    Now remove the four socket screws (M5 allen key)

    Next lift and slide this along the offending arm to expose where it is attached and remove the two philips screws

    The arm can now be removed and then slid out of the guide hole after removing its rubber end cap.

    The arm locked the pedestal at the selected height previously so now it is removed the table is no longer locked in place and can be depressed under load.
    To get around this I noticed this short screw here

    Remove and replace with a longer screw

    Job done but save the bits for when you sell

    Lots to do yet :Laughing:
    New tyres from Camskill going on just now one at a time so I can tart the steels up and check the brakes etc too. Fiamma 77 bike lift arrived today but weather forecast is pants for a good while now .

    Worth the effort. Washed the steel wheel and wire wooled all the rust off before primer and silver top coat. Better than rusty rings on view through the wheel trims
