Hi I'm Kevin on the front of seal in pic you can see a circlip around the front of seal once removed seal will come off
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hello Kevin,
If I understand correctly the circleclip is what is keeping it all together. I guess I need to apply pressure to pretty much squeeze the seal so the circleclip can actually come out. The circleclip seems to be "swallowed" a bit by the disc and just like that I doubt it'll come out.
Expert:  Kevin replied 2 years ago.
That's how it works you will need a small set of circlip pliers and open up circlip and it will release this is the only. Way to get it off
