Prise away the protective cap. The caps may be either red or black in colour but the same method applies.
Insert the end of a screwdriver into the hole created by the removal of the cap, and tap gently with a hammer.
The friction pad will drop out of the bottom of the stabiliser.
Repeat the process for the opposite side.
To replace the cleaned or new friction pads, simply insert the friction pad into head of the stabiliser and click into place.
Note: It is not necessary to adjust the friction pads
