With the needle nose pliers, grasp the hook of the rear spring as close as you can to the coils. Stretch the spring back and, with a twisting motion,  pull the hook out of its catch. It is recommended to close the door before doing this. Slowly relieve the tension after pulling it out of the catch or else it may damage the spring attachment.
