The Guardian is the only bow that Bowtech makes that you can change strings by backing out the limbs. Too much limb tension remains after the bolt reaches the hole. My advise go to a press that can handle the Bowtech split limb bows... I sell 'em... I won't try it...
Yes they can be changed, but you have to be carefull. The bow will come completely apart limbs, rockers, everything will come apart. But if you take your time and do ONE string/cable at a time it can be accomplished without it all coming apart.
Alot easier and safer to take it to someone with a fingers press.
I did it just this week. Back the limb bolts out but not all the way. Keep an eye on the hole towards the end of the riser and make sure you don't back the limbs all the way out. You can then remove the strings and cables and replace them.
FYI, timing everything afterwards can be a pain if you don't have a press.
