Default Raptor G2 Main Gear Replacement

Hey All,
My main gear has a slight wabble on a new shaft that is causing a vibration and an nasty sound. Yes I have already checked the shaft to make sure it's straight.

I have the new main gear. I have taken the all the head parts off and the axis can be removed. I'm ready to remove the gear, but it appears that I may need to take the frame apart to get to the main gear. Is this the case or is there a trick to getting the little jewel out? Any tips on the disassembling of the frame are much appreciated (assuming they are needed).

Thanks,

I have to assume no one has ever attempted this on this forum?

You don't need to split open the frame to change the main gear. You need to remove the elevator crank from the frame and the meain gear will slide out. http://site.exceedrc.com/resource/product/g2-ex.jpg
