    Some have a very small wire clip that is fed in to a hole in the 'cup' the ball sits in
    It is easier to feel than to see usually
    Feel around the cup for a wee sticky out bit :)

    Many thanks to those who responded. Neighbour and I took it out in 20mins. Did ask for help from local Reimo converters but not very helpful. Lucky really as probably saved me some money
