I would like to replace the plastic on the upper guard with wood.
How do you loosen the ends so the swap can be made?

Here's a site that shows how to remove the upper hand guard:

Look under the Tutorials on the lower left for "Furniture Removal".

You don't loosen the ends to remove the HG. You rotate the HG 180 degrees and let it fall free. The best way is to grip the gas tube with a smooth-jaw, adjustable wrench at the point where the tube meets the sight block. Then rotate the HG with your other hand. Same steps for re-installing.
