    Seconded. It's so easy, even I managed to do it. Looks much nicer and with a bit of rain-x you wont' miss it.

    It'll be seizing up, try a whole load of WD40 on the spindle, if it's as bad as some then you'll need to take it apart or replace it. I had to get a blow torch on mine just to free it up enough to allow it to slide out, totally corroded.
