  3. Loosen the attachment bolts of the index pins.
  4. Press the index pins out of the indexing plate from below with a suitable tool.
    Please pay attention that the index pin gets pressed out evenly and that the bolt doesn’t bend.

  6. Please follow the steps in reverse order to reinstall the new index pins and make sure that they get installed at the right place as shown below.
