Yup.. pull the chain, remove the c-clips and yank the gears first. After that, you just remove the retaining screws to drop the bearings and springs. Many people (including myself) have found those little screws quite a bugger to remove and some have even replaced them with torx or hex heads to make it easier in the future. I found that an appropriate sized phillips bit in a 1/4” socket wrench provides all the torque needed to remove them fairly easily.
