I’m trying to get like the shaft part off, with the spring and all that good stuff. I’m trying to remove that.

you got to remove the eclip for that use a flat head screw driver and needle nose pliers watch it though those things flt all over the place

edit: to make it more clear the e clip is that little peice of metal on top of the sticks actuator or underneath he the crevice you used to unscrew the balltop

I think this is gonna be difficult. Any pointers to do it?

yea that thing is a little bastard

but yea you just got to pull it out with pliers a screwdriver might help as well be careful though dont bend the clip or lose it haha

Ok, I got it off. It was a bitch, but I got it. xD

Double post. Now how can do I get it back on. <.<

Pliers, a hammer, a vice.

I got it on. I just placed it on and the spring held it in place. Once it was steady enough, I pushed it against my table with a good amount of pressure and it went on there nice and smooth.
