ion board stuck

I was trying to disassemble my Ion for the first time, and after I get the body unscrewed from the trigger frame, I can't seem to pull the body off. I got the front banjo unscrewed, but I can't get any further. From looking around on here, it seems like the board is supposed to slide up right? When I try to slide to board out, it won't budge. Its like its pressed/glued in. Just wondering if there is some secret to it, or if it is just hard to get out. Thought I'd ask before I break something. Thanks.

Push on the bottom of it with your thumb while you pull up holding the board on both sides with your other thumb and index finger. Dont pull up on the body, only pull the board...

good luck

unscrew the grips and take the battery out and after that you will be able to push the bord from the bottom

Thanks, I got it. My thumb is sore now, but I got the board out without breaking anything.

It will get easier as you take your marker apart for maintenance, and cleaning.

it also really helps to make sure your grip screws arent all the way tight....the top screw on the right side tends to pinch the board in place.

Same thing happened to me, the right side grip screw hit during board removal, and I couldn't see it, so I pushed and pushed and struggled, then finally figured it out.
