Can't adjust Ryobi D180R router

I have to put my motor in a vise to adjust the height. The lever is loose, so it's not the problem. Is there some trick, like another pin that needs to be pushed?

It could be that there is (post #157286, reply #1 of 2)

It could be that there is something stuck in the adjustment rods( like dust ), that's causing it to stick. There's definately something wrong and I would advise against forcing anything until you figure out what it is. If you break a part on a Ryobi tool your chances of getting replacement parts is almost nil. At least based on my past experience with a Ryobi router. Their tools are generally made for  ocassional home owner use . Good luck!
