Remove the nut on top of the upper triple clamp, loosen the pinch bolts and slide the upper clamp off. Now loosen the spanner nut and the rest of the works will slide out.

No, you can use a screwdriver and a hammer to loosen it if needed. They do make a special tool that makes it super easy though, called a spanner wrench. I bought a set of 3-4 from Harbor Freight a few years back for like $10.
