Gas Lift Chair

Gas Lift Chair
Need help disassembling office chair…?

How do I detach gas lift from star base and seat…I removed the screws, but don’t know how to separate the parts…thanks!!
I put the chair together originally, so I know it is removable…It’s just so tight that I don’t know how to separate the parts…I don’t want to accidentally damage the chair in the process

Probably it is just jammed in there so tightly that it will need a little “persuasion” to come out. Try tapping it with something that isn’t likely to damage it.
