OK! I tried pulling straight up on it. But there's still something holding it together.
I'm assuming the spring has something going through the center. How do you properly remove that?
Do you just take a flathead screw driver, and pop off the plastic spirally thing (opposite of the metal plating; By 1st/2nd gear)?

Thanks for the answer, by the way. I'd like to get this solved before work tomorrow.
