Default How to remove landing from retract body

On a TopRC FW-190? The landing gear struts are bent slightly so the wheels won't retract into the wing.
How do I remove the landing gear from the retract body?

Most retracts have grub screws into the sides of the trunnion (the bit that rotates). To get at them - you need to remove the whole gear from its mount so you have access to both sides ...
With most - you will see a brass insert in each side ... its the pivot ... a 1.5mm hex driver inserted in will find the grub screw deep inside. You do not have to unscrew and remove ... but unscrew enough to clear the flat on the landing leg.

Thanks Nigel. That clearly explains it.
