REMOVE RIGHT AXLE, WITH A LONG SLIM DRIVER TAP LEFT AXLE TO DISLODGE THEN REMOVE.
THROUGH THE HOLE THE RIGHT AXLE CAME OUT OF, LOOK (WITH FLASHLIGHT) YOU WILL SEE
A RATHER LARGE SHINY PIN, THERE IS ENOUGH ROOM BESIDE THIS PIN FOR A LONG SLIM,SAY
SCREWDRIVER, LOOK AND SEE THE OTHER AXLE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS PIN, THAT IS WHAT YOU
NEED TO PUT THE SCREWDRIVER ON THEN TAP WITH HAMMER TO MOVE "LEFT"AXLE JUST ENOUGH TO
DISLODGE SO IT WILL SLIP RIGHT OUT. NOW THERE ARE OTHER OPTIONS BUT I KNOW THIS ONE WORKS.
AND IT DON'T TAKE THAT LONG! THE RIGHT AXLE IS EASY TO POP OUT.
