Advice needed on Bostitch PN100 o-ring replacement


Bought an o-ring replacement kit for my PN100 palm nailer. There's a schematic but no service manual. Seems pretty straight forward: just pull the screws on the cap and go to it.

...or so it seems..

Cap screws are pulled & the cap isn't coming off. Pulled the nose piece too, but no effect. There aren't any other fasteners I can see, but still the caps tight on there.

What an i missing? Any help appreciated.

Oh, I've got the diagram. It looks like a pretty straight up affair from that.

Which is why I find it confusing that the cap's not releasing.

Update: Nevermind, I got it. Took a lot more prying than I'd expected. Swapped out the o-rings and the thing's running like a top now!
