    If you figure out which one to order. I'll order an extra for you. I'm at work and am so ridiculously distracted by this upcoming build. I just keep hitting refresh on my UPS tracking waiting for parts to arrive lol....

    Thanks for the offer, mate! But I actually just wrapped a small little portion of tape around the end of the pin & it's stayed in place nicely (knock wood)!!

    Nice. I was thinking about trying a very small rubberband that I could just roll over the end of it.

    How did you guys manage to remove the C-Clip? That's the only thing hindering me from finally getting my G5 fully deconstructed and for the life of me I can't get it off.

    Thanks! I actually did the same thing right after I posted this (used an eyeglass screw driver).

    Great little guide :clap:

    Luckily enough the infamous 'c clip' pinged its way into the little cup I was using for all of my screws :headbang:

    The only casualty here was one of the little nylon washers, which is a little annoying because the locking pin is slightly loose meaning the locking handle sits ever-so slightly proud of the case... :banghead:

    I don't suppose anyone knows where to get such a menial part?

    Cheers guy

    If you have a local hardware store where you can buy nuts and bolts and other hardware by the piece it wouldn't hurt looking there.
