Hi!

The loco has two traction tyres.

The drawing is correct and clear as mud: There are no screws, everything is just clipped together. I use a very small screwdriver to release the truckframe from the nose that holds it.

Take the loco body off before you start.
Removing the truck frame releases the truck and the "plastic toothpick" (or cardan shaft) will easily pop out. Pay attention to the wheel sliders when putting the wheelset back into its place.
Regards
Tom

Be as gentle as you can. Feel free to try a finger nail or a Märklin hand uncoupler instead of the screwdriver.
But in the end it is the force that matters, not the material of the tool.

Maybe others know better tricks.
