Stick you finger in the hole where the braided cable comes out to hold it up. Then when the feeder is off, pull the knurled drive and insert a screw to hold it in place till you are ready to install the next bit.
You could also just remove the white cover and hold it by hand.

Awesome stuff - thanks a million! I hope to give this a whirl tomorrow then.
I agree with neotko, just remove the white cover plate and save yourself any headache. Just make sure you don't pinch any wires when you re-attach the motor.
Fantastic stuff! Much appreciated.

Well, I followed all your helpful advice and it turned out that replacing the feeder was really very simple. Far simple than I thought it would be, and I should have done it ages ago since it if far better than the stock feeder.
I was struggling with nylon (Taulman Bridge) and Robert's feeder makes it a doddle. Also the quick release is brilliant.
So, thank you Robert. And if you are reading this and wonder if you should go ahead and change your stock feeder, then let me encourage you to do so.
I fail to see why Ultimaker have not incorporated your ideas into their feeder, it is that good!
You could remove 3 screws and attach one then loose the last one..
