Accu-slide motor access

replacing an Accu-slide cable looks easy enough, but how do you access the motor and chain area in a HR Ambassador (or Monaco Knight)? It's the full wall slide I have a problem with, and it looks like you have to remove the wood header along the ceiling. Anyone have experience? Do you just pry off the front and hope you don't totally screw it up, then re-nail it, or is there a trick? Any help would be appreciated!

Yup, the wood cover just prys off. They use a pin nailer to re-attach without leaving larger nail holes. I did not have a pin nailer and simply filled the nail holes left by a finish nailer.

I was able to just grab a hold of it and pull it off without tools.

It is an odd way to access it in my opinion, but that's what they did.

ADDED: Let me qualify this by stating mine is NOT a FWS but I have the same mechanism on my bedroom wall slide.

If it isn't velcroed on like mine, than just gently pry off the header
