The circlip only holds the core in.  For this type, there will be a little spring loaded pin you push in on the area behind the instrument panel.  Rather than trying to explain in detail in another short novel, I'll try to get some pictures to post later today.

Thanks Aaron, much appreciated ;)  No rush, this one is low on the list (for me at least ;D)
Cheers

I am pretty sure mine is the same as your one stamped with "Neiman 160".  If you look at my last pic I posted you will see the "160" on the outer rim of the face.

I imagine you release the lock via that hole on the side which would be a bastard, as it means the lock mechanism has to be out to release it! Ive never tinkered with one of these yet but UTN will give the word I trust.
