I spent 30 minutes trying to nudge the rods out, pushing from the inside with a needle nose and pushing the outwards tab that keeps flexing with a flathead to stop the flex...Gave up and sprayed PB Blaster to soak it for 10 minutes.

Came back and did the same thing as before, push from inside with needle nose and prevent flex by pushing inwards with a flathead. The rod nearly came flying out for both sides...


Also I could not load the spring back with the cover down and closed, it was too hard. So I lifted the cover open halfway, and stuck a tissue box in between to hold it half open. Loaded the spring EASILY with the cover half open.
