The bolt is just counter clockwise. Just pop off the center cap on the center of the wash plate, and then you need a socket set to remove the bolt down underneath which is regular thread so you just turn it counter clockwise to remove the bolt.

The large wash nut below the wash plate comes off with an adjustable wrench and that one is reverse thread when you get to it. So you would turn that clockwise to remove.
