Unless you really want to clean up the shavings.

I could be wrong as I haven't done this myself.
Mark the position and then use the worm gear or something else to rotate it?

And as I understand it, it isn't necessarily the cure for all instances of the triad of lights.
Just where the clicking sound is heard after shutting the engine down?

lol. yea i took it off anyway. i wanted to clean out the shavings and i wanted to be sure that the worn down piece is completely on the opposite side. wasn't too bad. just had to tap it back into place.
