Question about IBM Correcting Selectric II
Is the tab set/clear key a "snap-on? key?
Yes, all the keys are snap on. Use a spring hook on top and bottom of the key and wiggle (carefully) upwards to remove. (If you don't have spring hooks, then hefty paper clips will do. Create a 90 degree or better bend on the end of the clip)

The tab/set keybutton as well as the on/off buttons do "NOT" snap on. They are on a shaft that has a "C"-clip on the out side that if you remove the clip, slide the button off and then remove the button from the metal piece that is a pivot for the mechanism. I have been working on those machine for over 38 years.

If you know how to remove the right dust cover (black inside the T/W below the carrier) next to the R. side frame is the correction set up mech. spray some WD40 on the arms especially where they pivot, they should free up.
