Tear down for maintenance - any tips?

My printer has been running for a year now and I think it is time to disassemble it for cleaning and lubricating, especially the linear bearings. Are there any tips, other than reading the manual that will minimize what I have to do to get the job done safely?  (Especially tips about cable management.)

I should note that I plan to block the X axis assembly up, remove the screws from the Z nuts then unscrew them independently to remove the X axis.

Thanks in advance - Jerry

Make sure you have spare parts printed in case something breaks.

Normal people believe that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Engineers believe that if it ain’t broke, it doesn’t have enough features yet....
