Just take the little diamond shaped cover off of the side of the head and thread a 6mm bolt into that shaft behind the cover and pull it out out of the idler gear.

Here's a tip regarding this, yes you pull the little diamond shaped cover but, simply installing a screw in the center of the intermediary gear axel and pulling turns out to be a female dog. Get a socket with a diameter that's larger than the axel and grab a screw that's slightly longer than the socket. Put the socket over the axel, thread the screw through (use a washer if the screw goes through the socket drive hole) and tighten. The screw will pull the axel out nicely.
