SR9C Striker Removal/Cleaning

Are there any tricks to removing the striker for cleaning and it's re-installation?
Can someone please take me through the process in language an old duffer can understand
Is trigger position an issue, anything else I need to know?
I've cleaned the piece using the field take down procedure but I've read a few threads about light primer strikes and gobs of factory grease in the striker channel. Just want to clean this area to head off any potential problems.

there are several video's on Youtube that show just how to do it. Much easier than words typed.

Googling this topic pointed me to this thread, way faster and more efficient than asking the members an old question. No need to reinvent the wheel :-)
