Yes, they're really held on with set screws.  You'll need an 1.5mm allen 
wrench to get them off.  Don't try a standard allen wrench - you'll just 
strip it.

Also, some of the gears are glued to the shafts.  Use nail polish 
remover to dissolve this before removing the gears.  To not use any 
force at all to remove the gears from the motor shafts - they are very 
delicate, precision gearboxes, and the slightest deflection will render 
them useless.
