    Removing Axel from DT Swiss/ Roval Fusee Hub

    I'm wondering if anyone can help with this Specialized Roval Fusee wheel hub (2011 Tarmac). I believe the freehub body is DT Swiss but the exterior hub is Roval (Specialized). I have a broken spoke and as you can see from the pictures, I can't remove it to replace it with a new one unless (as far as I can tell) I slide the axel out to then be able to slide the spoke end free. The freehub body detached just by popping it off, as per the instructions I found for DT Swiss, but I can't figure out how the axel comes out. I have read reports that I can tap it out. Does this sound/look safe to attempt with this hub? BTW: I see no hex cap to unscrew, so I believe that I should try to tap it out but thought I would post here to check first.

    Thanks!

    OK-- second part of the question. Do I need the DT Swiss Ring Nut Removal Tool to get the axel out of the exterior hub body, or is this tool only used to disassemble the freehub body to get at the bearings? All I need to do is change a spoke. This is driving me nuts!
