There is a clip that snaps onto the end of the linkage. Pop this free to release.

That's the best I can describe. Maybe someone has a photo.

After removing the clip place a open end 10mm wrench between the two and pop it off...

The clip is a swing arm clip and then it must be removed. It is a locking feature which is very frustrating until you see it.

Look closely at the ball/socket and you will see that a pin is stuck through it to keep it from popping open inadvertently. The pin is in line with the shaft and is in turn secured with a wire loop around the shaft.
So git a little screwdriver under the loop and pivot the loop and then pull the pin.
When the pin is out, the easy way to pop the ball/socket is by shoving a screwdriver between them and twisting.
