Replacing exhaust kit on Mirka CEROS

Anyone know how to access the bolt holding it on ? I've taken the pad off but it's still occluded by the actual exhaust.

As a keen student of locks, I would add that some Euro cylinder locks with thumb turns are susceptible to being bypassed with a wire, and consequently do not offer very much security.
