I have a 2030 but I’m not sure which gears you’re talking about. Are these the two gears that raise and lower the table height? And if so, do you just need to try to figure out how to remove them? Or are you looking for replacement gears?

You talking about these?

If so, you need to remove that bracket held on by 5 bolts so you can access the nut holding the gear on the threaded shaft. Once you remove that gear, the other gear is held in place by a snap ring.
