    Rancilio Silvia group seal removal

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    The group seal in my Rancilio Silvia is leaking and I cant get it out.
    I would like to get it our without damage if possible in case it just needs a clean.
    Is there a special tool?
    Can anyone help me?

    They do a gasket picker. You should be able to so it with a thin scrrewdriver or screw as well. I replace my group seal every 6 months or sooner....;)

    The screw was a great idea.
    Also I was trying to get it out without too much damage but realised it doesnt matter anyway.
    thanks for that.
