pedal bearings/axle disassembly?

One of my Shimano PD-6610 Ultegra SPD-SL Pedals sticks and does not spin well. I checked the tech doc link below - and it says take it to a mechanic for help with moving part issues! Can anyone tell me how to take it apart so I can see what going on inside the bearings? Hopefully it just needs to be cleaned & greased.

You'll need the shimano tool to grab the plastic splined piece right next to the axle threads at the very least.


Here is the relevant exploded diagram:

This is what the inside looks like. http://techdocs.shimano.com/media/te...9830608604.pdf
This is the bearing adjustment tool. http://www.biketoolsetc.com/index.cg..._id=SH-TL-PD33
If the bearings don't need adjustment you remove the cartridge and clean out the housing. Then fill the housing with grease and replace the cartridge. It will force out the old grease from the bearings. I repeat every 5k miles.
