Dumb question time. Can anyone tell me how to get the Flex Shaft out of the machine to lube it?

I assume, that since it just popped in there, it should just pop out.

By the way, the prior post mentions lithium grease. That has been updated to Industial Chain Lube with Moly.

Thanks Nathan.

I got it out and carefully watched for the small spring that is supposed to be on the end, but I didn't see one. Is it possible that there isn't one?

I've never heard if a small spring on the end,
I do know there is a long spring, that is nearly the length of the Flex- Shaft,
that slips around the flex-Shaft inside of plastic Outer sheath.
