Goiot 363 furler disassembly

I found the similar parts breakdown and assembly instructions in French (thanks Gord) but can anyone tell me in English about how to disassemble and lubricate/replace the bearings? The lower unit has become quite difficult to turn.

I just sprayed loads of WD 40 on mine, cleaned and lubricated it. If you want to remove the lower bearing you'll have to take the foil off the forestay.

WD40 is a poor lubricant.

Does anyone have any directions for disassembly?
And should the bearings get waterproof grease or are they greaseless bearings (unlikely for an old unit).

Ok, don't use wd40, sounds like you know better than the manufacturer.
