removing octave key on Yamaha 23 alto

One video posted on this site re: recorking a neck suggested removing the octave key to avoid damaging it. Thought I might do that, but the simple screw removed in the video doesn’t seem to exist on my yas 23. I’m pretty sure I can recork without removing the octave key, but now I’m curious about how I would go about removing it? Advice much appreciated.

Unless someone performed some sort of "unorthodox" repair on your neck, you should have that screw.

Here's an iFixit tutorial detailing how to replace a neck cork on exactly the same model you've got (i.e., a YAS-23). It points out the location of the screw. Of course, you don't need to use a self-adhesive cork like the one shown in the tutorial.
