You need to remove the right grip panel, and then wiggle the right piece of the ambi-safety out. Some come out easy, and others may take some effort to get them out.

A plastic credit card (use an expired one) makes a good pry tool. It won't mar the gun and will bend long before you can exert too much force.

FWIW, I find it's easier to take the slide off the frame first, take the spring out of the slide, take the plug out the back (unlike a Colt, it comes out the back), push the barrel forward and then turn the bushing.

To put it back together, assemble the slide and capture the spring at the guide rod with your hand when you put the slide back on the frame. Hold the slide back with an overhand grip at the rear and put the slide stop in.

Thanks Kruzr,

thats what I ended up doing, was putting the spring and plug in the slide first and guiding it in.

A pain in the butt process though... thanks for your help!
