Reversing shaft

It's been a long time since I've done this. I need to reverse the shaft of a little Emax 2212 motor.
If memory serves me right, I need to remove the c clip, loosen the grubscrew, tap the shaft through to the other side and tighten the grubscrew again.

After you remove the Circlip you can pull the housing off after a brief contest with the magnets. Then you can remove the grub screw(s) and use a piece of tube or something to localize the forces close to the shaft and press the shaft to flush with the top of the housing. Then you can use a screw or something to press it fully out.

These threads have most or all of the details you'll need:
