Can the trigger assembly and hammer be taken out of the lower with out taking the selector out?

There are many more here that know a lot more than me, but a lower really doesn't get too dirty. I may spray some brake cleaner in there and let it dry and then lube the hammer and maybe put a drop of lube on the moving parts.

I can't think of any good reason to completely disassemble a lower for cleaning, but taking the selector out is easier than the rest of the parts so you wouldn't be saving any work by doing it that way.
If you are gonna take it completely apart, might as well go all the way.
But again I can't think of any reason to do that other than to repair something.
