Default Associated Shock Question

I am trying to rebuild the shocks on my RC10GT and I took the caps off and drained all the oil out. Then I took the shock eyelet off and took the shock shaft out. Right now I am trying to get the old o rings and plastic washers out with the black tool that they give you in the shock rebuild kit but I still can't get the o rings and spacers out. Is there a trick to doing this or am I just doing something wrong?

from the outside insert tool into bottom hole of shock body...

use the sharp edge of the tool to dig into a O-Ring . Push or tap the tool lightly until you pop out the rings & seals....

Check carefully to be sure all of the seals are gone ...

Thumbs up Shock ?

Put the tool in the shock body at an angle.Should unsnap and your ready to clean and put new parts in.

Yeah it does take a little bit of force to pop that white square part out of the grooves in the bottom of the shock body - like everyone said, just put the sharp side of the tool in at an angle and push, the stuff will pop out.

The tricky part is bleeding the shocks right so that you don't have much air in them but still get the rebound you need. I need to get some of those Yokomo shock caps with the bleeder screw, that seems pretty handy.
