Door vacuum pods for lock and unlock

I have a couple tested and proven bad ones so pik a part provided me more to work with.

The unit on the right is very straightforward on how to get the actuator arm out, that being simply snap it open.

The one on the left is the issue. It doesnt want to pull out nor unscrew nor did pressing with a blunt screwdriver provide any help.

How do I get the actuator rod out of the units on the left ? Id prefer to not just smash it as Id like be able to reuse it. I dont know which type I have in my doors yet either. Im sure hoping its the snap in type.

Thanks

The large outside part where it attaches to the rods slides down. Once lowered, you can move the rods sideways out of the "teeth".

I figured it was something simple. Proving I was just working on the wrong section.

Knowing that in advance would have sure saved a bunch of effort at pnp.

Pics show how an 'open' one looks.

For anyone else working on the door locks, Ive found at least two to the bigger rubber connector pieces that were split at the tip allowing for a vacuum leak.

Sure appreciate the rapid knowing response too, thanks.
