There are lots of different types of Bottom Bracket and each require different tools to maintain or replace them. So, first up get your bike on the workstand if you have one and start by removing the non-driveside crank with a 8mm hex key. As you rotate the key it will pull the crank off the splined shaft which is permanently attached to the driveside crank.
FSA's SL-K Light Compact MegaExo chainset might be a bit of a mouthful to say but it is light, stiff and strong while after six months of use the bottom bracket is still running as silky smooth as it was out of the box. The cranks are monocoque carbon composite with "enriched glass fiber content" says the blurb although we didn't have any luck finding out what enriched glass fibre brings to the partythey're also hollow to keep the weight down, with a unidirectional carbon finish. They're held in place with Torx T alloy bolts so swapping new chainrings in place when they eventually wear out is a simple job. As usual with an external bottom bracket system, the 24mm axle is cromoly, while the chainset comes with a mm Q-factor pedal stance width.
