Default Losi 8T conversion help!

Im putting the electric conversion on the Losi 8T roller, and Im having trouble switching out the spur gear. Once you remove the spur from the rest of the differential, how do you get the remaining gear and other parts off?

Do I yank them apart, or am I missing something, because it doesnt seem to have anything to unscrew or remove to let the parts come loose?

take the spider gear off, slide the pin out of the hole and then the cup should just slide out...also take the bearing off of the spur gear

if you have the four screws from the diff apart ...pop it apart and and remove the gear then theres the small pin and it comes apart ....if all else fails read your manual

How do I get the spider gear off though? Just yank with pliers or something?

I've got the 4 diff screws out, just not sure how to get the spider gear off, its on there pretty good, and doesn't seem to be able to be pulled off by hand?

Ya, trying to pry on it a bit and its not coming loose. I just don't want to bend anything. Can't seem to find it in the manual either...just pics of it.

Thanks,

Im talking about the spur gear side that comes off, and how I've tried to get the sun/spider gear off the back of one side of it.
