Default Remove brushes in Team Orion Revolution motor?

Anyone know how to remove the brushes on a Team Orion Revolution motor? Unlike the usual brushed motors these have those weird angled brushes and I just don't see how to remove the springs to get the brushes out. I asked this in the electronics forum but figured this may be a better place to ask because i know a ton of touring guys used these motors.

BTW Please no suggestions about going brushless.

I remember watching a video where Oscar Jansen covered a full rebuild of one of their Revolution series motors. From what I can remember, the brush actually comes out through the inside of the endbell, and the spring is in behind it.

I think the video was on an RC Racing TV episode, but I could be wrong.

this is from the method motor, but the process is pretty much the same.

The endbell should be removed, then you can remove the brushes then the springs.
