Hi All
just removed my center spar and had to remove one of the rear spar uprights to get the spar out. Has anyone removed the spar by just removing the 2 FWD spar uprights and how did you do it for the benifit of others?

Yes, just removed front uprights. Pretty straight forward w/ no issues. Took off the uprights, then took out the center section. Maybe I am missing something, but it was w/o diffeculty.

Chris, it's much easier to remove all of the Uprights. Then lift the Center Spar straight up and over the seat pan and lay flat. I detailed in my Install blog. I originally removed one rear upright, but still struggled and scratched paint.

Here is a link to my Center Spar Assembly blog at minimum, it has additional pictures.

I had to remove one of the rear uprights too. I couldn't see how to get it out without damaging something otherwise.
