I just received a nearly new Bolex P4. The manual says to remove the pressure-pad (with fingers, no tools)for cleaning. I can only see the backing-plate that closes in on the film. I'm not sure what I'm looking for. I don't see anything removable (without serious disassembly). Could someone clarify this for me?

...the pressure plate can be removed simply by releasing a small lever near the gate, tilting the outside edge of the pressure plate back, and then pulling it out of the camera.
I released the lever, but was nervous about pulling on anything. I'll have another look.
Thanks for the help and contact info, too.
