Default Servo Gear replacement BLS173sv

BLS173sv
I have a little slop at centre on aileron and have a new gear set to fit hoping to rectify.

What method should I use to remove the large gear? Is it gently lever off with a small blade then press the replacement on? Or is a special tool required.

The existing gear set has a small amount of grease. I have some Hacker grease used for their planetary gearbox, is this suitable to use?

Thanks in advance,
John

That is something I'll have to ask the service folks about. Stand by.

I found by gentle levering the main gear is removed. All good!

New gearset went in without a problem.

Second servo, old gearset removed easily. New gearset a little tight resulting in a servo not happy. Buzzing constantly although it appears to operate normally. Refitted a combination of old and new gears. The plastic gear and the next small gear in the train new, the rest old. The servo now operates normally without buzz.

Hopefully I have removed most, if not all, the slop.
