If youre referring to the brass part that the wand nut screws onto, are you sure you need to remove it? The ball at the top of the wand has a plastic half cup seat either side of it. One is on the wand side and the other inside the fitting the nut screws on to. There is also a washer above this. If you carefully use a small hook made from wire, you should be able to pull the washer and top cup out I believe.Originally Posted by 7B6069727269080 link=1339198741/0#0 date=1339198741
You can buy a replacement wand and seals on Ebay for about $25. Put the washer and top half cup inside the top fitting first then slide the nut and bottom half cup over the ball of the new wand and reassemble. Dont overtighten the wand nut or the new cups will be damaged. You can always tighten a little if it leaks. Take note of the order of the half cups and washer when you pull apart.
