No don't remove the bolts, they do indeed hold the two parts together and
all the ball bearings. You have to hold the part with the electrical
connection in your hand (that will be the fixed piece). Run your finger up
from the socket and where your finger stops if where it turns. If I
remember there is enough slop in the rotator that if you hold the top of the
rotator with one hand and the bottom with the other you should be able twist
CCW on way and CW the other way and see some movement.
It is really hard to explain.

Do you have the manual. Take a look at Figure 13 on Page 13. Does that help?
