Hey there guys,

Just bought a Roadshow pinball and am very happy with it so far!
The problem I pose to you today is this;
The right ramp diverter has a small amount of slack, not sure why yet, and the problem is I have no idea how to get the metal piece that holds the solenoid and diverter off the back of the playfield. It's clear how the piece is attached to the back, by two nuts. These nuts seem impossible to get off as they are too close to the piece of metal above, meaning that I can't fit any spanner / pliers between the gap to twist the bolts off.

So, any ideas? Tightening the diverter itself shouldn't be a hassle once I have it out of the machine, it's just getting it out that's the problem.

While I'm here, is there a reason or fix as to why when I hit a fast ball up the left ramp, the ball flies out of the ramp and over the playfield? Occasionally the ball gets stuck on wires / switches and requires the glass to be removed, a real pain.

Thanks a lot guys, I really appreciate it!
