1) Release spring tension. 2) Use deep 8 mm socket to release the chromed ball-top locknut that removes from the outside of the derailleur, lower pivot. 3) Use proper screwdriver to remove cage and upper pivot bolt, from inside of derailleur. 4) Note that there may be one or more very thin shim washers between the spring and the cage.
