Adjust the clutch rod to take all of the tension off. You might have to use a screw driver to pry the spring off or perhaps a vise grip to pull the end of the spring off of the post.

Just think about where your face is in relation to the spring, it is pretty HD and can react a bit violently. That said, it isn't that difficult, just think it through a bit.
