There is a spiral retaining ring on the back side(the side towards the trans) you have to remove that ring to take it apart BUT BE CAREFULL the spring inside is under pressure and it will pop when the retaining ring is removed. Once you have it apart you can replace the o-rings. I used ATF on the o-rings when I put it back together. It may take two people to get it put back together because you have to compress that spring and put the retaining ring in at the same time. Since I did it this way I havent had any trouble with mine. Good luck Bud.

It's pretty easy. DON'T use oil on the o-rings. Use brake fluid or brake assembly fluid only! Oil will dissolve the o-rings.
