Is there anyone out there who has had one of these apart?
Mine has a worn top uni joint. The tilt gimbal arrangement has swivel pins, I need to know how to dismantle this, are these pins interference fit bushes which can be pulled out or are they some kind of expansion plug or rivet? There is a thread running through the centre of these pins - for extraction purposes? I would really appreciate some pointers on this.

If I remember corectly there is only one spring on the column. You are right about the threads on the pin, a simple screw and some small pliers are all that are needed to remove the pin. the spring on my column did not require much effort to hold down to put the pin back in place. A thumb worked well.
