    Neil,
    You just need to bite the bullet , or in your case SPRING. Just undo those bolts & let it fly.
    JUST A THOUGHT .You could make up a board with two blocks of wood screwed to the board with the gap the same width as the shaft or a bit wider , secure the housing to the board then undo the screws. That way the spring can only expand as far as the blocks, then the will be less tension on the spring.

    Wayne,

    Hello again.

    You’re about three posts too late.

    I gutted the relay yesterday morning without any undue excitement. It simply came out without much force into the old blanket that I had shrouded around the base.

    I was never really afraid to do it - just wanted to check with anyone who had actually stripped one to see how big a reaction they got from the spring. Again, “everyone knows” they explode but it’s hard to find someone who has experienced it.

    Cheers,
