Default 36 Ford radio head repair

I wonder if someone has taken apart a 36 Philco FT-9 control head. I need to remove the switch for repair, but the dial gears are in the way. Does anyone know how to remove the dial gears. The right hand gear is captive to the center dial gear which doesn't want to come off. Both gears rotate freely.

There is a small wire clip behind the gears that holds them in. maybe someone else on here will have a picture of it.

Thanks Wayne. That was it. A little DeoxIT contact cleaner and the switch was fine.
