I'm not sure what you mean by extras. One motor has just the gearhead. The
other has a gearhead and an encoder.
I would guess that the housing unscrews rather than the face, but either
would be more compelling if there were any kind of suggestive turning aid on
it - like flats. Maybe Maxon has devised some special purpose tool to make
it difficult for users to do stuff like this.
Would this be a reliable threadlock for a small motor, though? Many/most
of them are so small (little area for dissipation) that the shafts get
pretty warm when running. Removing gears from motor shafts is my least
favorite thing to do.

When I say "warm" I mean warm enough to ask if he as extras, just in case...
During my lens repair days, in addition to the "opticians hammer", small
tweezers, spanners and drivers, we had a propane torch. The local heat was
preferable to an electric gun.
