unfortunately these are hard to remove , after years of being on they get really stuck it pulls off but sometimes you just cant budge them, they sell special tools to remove these but they are expensive, you have to pull this up really hard but watch out it doesn't hit you in the chin when it comes loose, this just slide down on this spline, Part 515877wish i could tell you an easy way but there is none , sorry, thanks Bryan
