    which part do you mean the front piece or back of it which is attached to the wheel?

    I haven't taken one apart at the shoulders, but I think the pin that holds the wheel in place also pins the arm into the shoulder. My guess is you'd need to carefully remove that pin and wheel, then the shoulder should come out (don't quote me on it though, since I haven't tried).

    If you give it a go, good luck!

    The best way is to pick up a cheap soldering iron (got mine at Wal-Mart). From there, hit up the tutorials section here (and over at Sector70). There's a nice wheel removal/pin removal tutorial that should help you out. I just tried this method out for the first time earlier this year. I removed the wheels from Universe Hound and replaced them with the wheels from Energon Sledge. I can show you a pic or two when I show you my other work.
