It's all a bit double Dutch to me but I'm sure when i come to taking it apart it will make much more sense :)

Thanks guys :)

remove this then just tap the splined shaft end through and out of the spider,
That makes it a lot easier Malcolm but I could have sworn My Activa shaft spider did not have a circlip. Maybe it's just that one is a bit different to the rest. Hope so!
