Technics SP10 MK3 bearing and lubrication

Does anyone know how to remove the spindle from an SP10 Mk3 so as to enable one to clean out the bearing lubricant and install new? This seemingly important topic is not mentioned in either the owners manual or service manual. (I don't have an owners manual, but I am assuming this is true, because none of the guys who do have a Mk3 owners manual can answer my question.) Any hints or relevant information would be appreciated. It seems certain that the process is much different from that of the Mk2. The usual suspects are just as much in the dark as I am on this question.
