lama v3 ball and socket /tbe

I'm new out here but just got a Lamav3 and love it so far. I have a couple of questions

#1 How to you take apart and reinstall those ball and socket joints that attatch just about everything on the heli?

#2 I had to replace one of the top blades on the heli after a minor crash/ I have what I think is toilet bowl effect right now, where should I go to try to correct this.

Thanks in advance.

Do a search and you'll find a lot of answers for the bowl effect.
But first you should check blade tracking and if any of the shafts are bend.

I can't really understand what you're referring in your 1st question

Get yourself a pair of ball link pliers or a ball link removal tool. It's the best way without breakink them. In a pinch I have used a table fork and a small flat blade screwdriver.

Being careful of course, I use a standard (flat) screwdriver and apply a snapping pressure against the link and it'll pop right off.
