I just don't recall having to do any of this though. IIRC mine had a C clip I pulled and everything came apart.
I'll go look in a bit here.
Yea. The grey plastic 'flower' petals snap off every time I try bending them backwards, off the metal hump. I don't believe they're supposed to do that.
I hardly put any stress on them too. There are now two (teeth) missing.

I'm not sure what C-clip you're referring to. See the image above.
