Hey Alan, It's me Vincent

I've got this lo-pro bass reel that i'm trying to service, but i cant take off the sideplate.

here are some pics (sorry for the quality, it was done on my phone)

the pictures show that there are 3 side plate screws on the right side, and nothing on the left sideplate but the cast-assist adjustment knob.  also there is a thumb screw on the right side plate that is directly connected to a bar that runs across the reel to the left side plate.  When i try to pull the right side plate off, it is still hanging onto the body right where the thumb screw is, but you cannot take the thumb screw completely out after you unscrew it.  Could it be held in by a clip?  How would you remove this side plate?

thanks a lot,

i'll return that other squidder drive shaft soon
