Servicing older lewmar winch

I have a older model (pre ocean?) Lewmar 40 (and 43) 2-speed winch, and I have a hard time figuring out how to disassemble them.

I can easily take off the circlip and lift off the drum, but I don''t know how to get the center spindle out of the base. It seems that if I can pry off the plastic disk holding down the 2 bearing rings, I should be able to take the spindle out, but I am concerned I might break that disk (and end up needing a hard-to-find spare part).

Does anyone have a Lewmar Service Manual Volume 6 lying around? I understand that manual has the specifics on this particular winch--everything I found on the lewmar website so far is for their newer winches.

Thanks!

The plastic around the bearings should lift off. Then the bearings lift off. Be careful of the plastic. It''s brittle as hell. Mine are now wired with pieces of plastic left holding the space between the bearings and the winch body. They work fine, but it ain''t pretty. No need to remove the "spindle." If stuff is stuck, WD40 the crap out of it and gingerly take things apart. Clean and dry and use appropriate grease.
