How in the world do you remove the large metal habit trail outer loop? There seems to be a 1/4 inch screw in the middle back of the playfield that is holding it down. The screw is vertical and recessed into the backboard and I can't seem to find a tool that will get to it. Surely you don't have to take the entire backboard off the playfield to get to that screw?? There has got to be an easier way. Am I missing something, or is it just a terrible design.

Quoted from ccbiggsoo7:

These are the best pics I have on my phone. The big metal guide that loops around from one side to the other. It has tabs that screw into the playfield every 6 inches or so. One of the tabs is under the back wall (backboard). There is a small notch cut out of the backboard where the screw is. It is like they installed the guide then installed the backboard on top of it. I was hoping there was a better way than removing the backboard, that has, I think, 6 screws going through the bottom of the playfield into the board and two metal brackets with screws on them also.
