Hi Nick,
The brake plate should just "fall" off. Infact they usually do when trying to put the wheel back in the forks! You must have a bit of corrosion on the exposed end of the spindle. I'm sure if you pull on the brake plate and rock it, it will loosen and come off. I hope this is of help.

fall off well it did eventually with the aid of a rubber mallet and the spindel in the wrong side of the hub and me using a little more force than i would of wanted to.
Thanks for the info i would not of tried to hit it that hard with out knowing it would come off.
