Shimano MF-Z015 hub bits required

Anyone out there with some Shimano MF-Z015 bits in their bits box? There I was happily dismantling the hub and, ping, off went the 2 pawls and retaining spring into the depths of my workshop. Managed to find one pawl but no luck with other and spring. Yes, I know, I should have taped it while removing hub from wheel. I'll pay with Paypal for the bits prior to dispatch if I should be so lucky

The MF Z015 is a freewheel, and only has to be removed as a unit to service your hubs. It sounds like you dismantled the freewheel, that is the only place where there are springs an pawls. How were you removing it from the hub? To remove the hub you would have to disassemble the entire wheel, including spokes and rim. I suspect you unscrewed the top of your freewheel, especially if you were using a pin wrench "to remove the hub".

Panic over

Panic over - I've found the 2nd. pawl. Sprint retaining clip had just slipped down the freewheel. All back together again

I'm glad you found all the parts. There are dozens of small bearings inside a freewheel, and those would have been a real challenge to find.
Take a look at Park Tool's site. Search for how to remove a freewheel.
