There are two 'C' clips that hold the wrist pin in place at either side. They sit in a little groove. I'm trying to remember how I took mine off.....I think I just got a very small screw-driver in there and levered one edge out gently and then got my finger in there. Be advised they do have a habit of going 'PING' and buggering off somewhere Laughing (hopefully not into your eye Very Happy )

Put the con rod inside a clear plastic bag then you can remove the clips,
that way there's no danger of them flying away.
Make sure that the open part of the circlip is opposite to the piston's small cut out and liberally oil the piston pin before inserting into the piston.
A small watch maker's screwdriver is ideal for re-fitting the clips.

You may have to heat the piston up before the gudgeon pin will come out.
