Skil jigsaw roller guide replacement

The Skil Jigsaw model # is 4395-01, & no longer under warranty. I'm attempting to replace Item # 844 in the diagram & parts list, but can't figure out how to get beyond the blade guard & blade holder. There are 3 access cover screws (one under a label), when removed, gives me access to the blade guard & blade holder. I called Skil Customer Service for advice, but they don't have a technical support department & told me to drop it off at a service center. Anyone have a clue on how to remove the blade guard & blade holder?

Diagram # 844 is the part I'm trying to reinstall

Parts List is for reference purposes only

There has to be another parts list that identifies the split case and internals including the blade holder. Can't tell if parts like 810, 844 and 55 can be removed without splitting the case.

I couldn't find any site or video discussing replacing that part.
I went to my "go to" place.... e-replacement.
They have a better expanded picture but not much more helpful info.

It doesn't look like much there.
