Step 5:
Use a socket/rachet and remove the second mounting bolt. You will need to remove the foam insullation for easier access.

Awesome post, Tom!

It should be noted that the screw is a Torx screw (at least mine is). I think it's a T15. Also the socket is a 10mm and the SVT doesn't reuse the Torx screw.
