Transfer seat lock assembly to new tail section
Hi, I bought a 2005 R1200GS with a broken pannier mount on the tail section aka luggage support. I found a used tail section online and am trying to swap it out. I've got the old one off but I can't seem to get the lock cylinder out of the old one so I can transfer the lock assembly to the new tail section. I put my key in the cylinder and push in on the locking tab but the cylinder won't budge. Is there a trick to this I'm missing? The key turns the cylinder OK so it's the right key, but I can't get the thing out. I know I'm probably missing something real simple.
I added a picture from the parts manual so you can see what I'm talking about.
