Push the pin in the middle of the extractor down and slide the extractor toward the firing pin. Be careful as the retaining pin may shoot out if you don’t keep something over it.

Thanks. I was trying that earlier but non of my punches are small enough so I was using a small nail. I guess I wasn’t pushing it far enough

A wire dental pick works perfectly, BUT as mentioned above, contain that thing like your life depends on it. It takes a faw days for BH to get a replacement in the mail.;)

That's the truth! I will usually put the entire bolt head and the tool I'm using into a clear plastic bag, so that everything stays contained if that little spring and plunger decide to take flight.
