    Use small needlenose pliers to gently pull one clip off the shaft. There are 2 small washers between the wheel and plastic (ships with new washers) Replace BOTH pinch wheels if you're replacing as it will save frustration in the end. Pinch wheels are about $62/pair.

    Go to Sears and buy the Craftsman mini pic set, the angled/hook one works perfect for removing those tiny C-clips. Very small needle nosed pliers or hemostatic forceps preferably work great for reinstalling them.

    This is the cheaper set that I got, about 6 bucks, very well worth it. Also you can find the forceps in the fishing dept at Walmart.

    I'm having the same issue HOWEVER, I can get the clips off easily. My problem is pulling that shaft out to release the wheel & washers! I attempted it on another wheel to see if it was just that wheel but it isn't. I cannot get that shaft out! What in the world could be the issue?

    There is a washer on each side of the pinch roller. When you slide the shaft out it gets caught in the groove on the shaft for the E-clip. Try pushing the washer up slightly while pulling the shaft out.
