When new, my Lewmar XAS clutch opens and closes easily even unload. Now it takes some effort. I wanted to strip it to service. I unscrew the 3 bolts and nuts on the side but cannot split open the clutches. Any advise appreciated.

Umm... Lewmar doesn't make the XAS clutch. Spinlock does. Be aware that Spinlock clutches often have a problem releasing if under a heavy load. That's one reason I don't like them and don't recommend them.

You can remove the cam in the Spinlock XAS without disassembly. Clean everything, and maybe a shot of McLube Sailkote on the lever pivot (NOT on the friction surfaces!)
