Thanks very much for the posting. I thought there was a tool that eliminated the need to remove the I/P? Or is that just the carrier?

Here's the procedure for removing the IP carrier if your application requires it. Sure hope you don't have to go through all this. What a pain. My interpretation is that this procedure is used when the mode actuator is equipped with a "cam assembly." Sorry, I'm not familiar with it.
