    take out the shoulder screws, use a lighter to burn the loctite on the screws, then remove the residue. as for the c hubs.. you'll need to use the end of a hobby knife or something to scrape the loctite out of that big part that the screw spins in... make sure not to score the aluminum, but just get the gunk out... when you put it back together, simply put a tiny drop IN THE HOLE the threads are in.. this will prevent the same thing from happening...

    Wire brush, or wire wheel on a Dremel or wire wheel on a bench grinder.

    Or threadlock the screws but let it 3/4 dry before assembly so it stays put.

    +1, although I used a torch, and there was no residue left to remove.
