Default Byp Yak: Switching Around the Shaft in the 370 motor

I'm putting together my E-Flite byp yak, it says I need to reposition the motor shaft so that the part where you attch the motor, attachs on the inside, instead of out. I basically just have to flip around the shaft. Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks

Assuming this is the recommended Eflite outrunner motor:

You need to remove the circlip holding the shaft and rotating can assembly to the motor base. Push the rotating assembly out of the base (this may require some finesse to overcome the pull of the magnets.

Once the rotating assembly is separated from the base, locate the set screws holding the shaft to the can. Use a QUALITY hex key to remove the set screw (no cheapies, or you'll strip it out and render the motor inseparable). Using a punch and small hammer, tap the shaft out of the rotating bell.
