Question about Blenders
How do I remove the little gray plastic clutch wheel so I can replace it? It sits on top of the drive shaft and its teeth fit into the bottom of the blade assembly to turn it.
These little jewels are threaded onto the motor shaft so they tighten up when in operation. To remove, you will have to immobilize the motor shaft. See if you can insert an icepick or screwdriver into the blades of the motor fan on the bottom. Then using a punch and hammer, gently tap the clutch disk in the direction opposite from its normal rotation.
BE CAREFUL not to use so much force that you break either the clutch disk or the motor fan blade.

Thanks to the above information, i was able to fix it. I bored out the hole at the bottom so i could insert a small screwdriver. I then grabbed the rubber drive gear turning it counter clockwise white putting pressure on the motor flywheel with the screwdriver from the newly bored hole. It took some muscle but the gear spun off.

Yep, that worked -- on my Krups GMA1, I used a fat drill bit in the center hole on the bottom, off-axis slightly until it caught the motor. Then I used a pair of pliers to unscrew the drive gear. Funny, Krups sells the spare part but says nothing to the consumer about how to actually replace the part!
