anyone know how to take out the release bearing sping?

I took out my tranny and it turns out that the spring was nubbed down, i can still use it, but i’d rather replace it and not have to worry about in the future.
I’ve taken out the 12mm bolt but I still can’t figure how that thing comes out…please help

You need someone with a helm’s or Haynes manual to help you out. Mine is not handy at the moment. You can search previous posts (couple of days ago) someone posted a link to a site by blackteg, the site has all the helm’s manual scanned. Download the section of the tranny. I remember that you need a special tool for that. Better check that web page.
