The Steps to remove your old gas cylinder
Firstly, extend the gas cylinder as far as it will go to provide some working room.
Nest remove the wheel base from the bottom of the gas cylinder. This is usually relatively easy to remove with a rubber mallet/club hammer and some WD40 if it is stubborn.
Open both Collars by removing one of the attachment screws and loosening the other.
Attach the Sliding Collar on the shaft of the gas cylinder under the seat base and tighten while keeping it slightly loose so it will slide along the shaft.
Attach the Anchor Collar underneath the Sliding Collar and position it so the sliding collar is between it and the seat base.
Tighten the Anchor Collar as tight as possible on the shaft so it cannot move
Insert the Through Screws into the Through Holes until they come through and start pushing against the Sliding Collar.
Using the Allen Key, alternate the tightening of the screws to apply pressure on the Sliding Collar until the Gas Cylinder pops out of the seat base. This could take between 8-12 rotations on each screw.
Remove the Collars and keep them until you need them again.
You are now ready to install your new Gas Cylinder and eradicate that sinking feeling.
