Okay its apart and looks fine.
you ask how did you do it? Why he found the perfect cheap
wedge tool. Went to Home Depot and bought a solid brass surface bolt made by Everbilt # 308972 I pulled the handle off the sliding part and used the inner bar, saw off the screw hole on one end (this is the part that screws to the wall) I found it fits the wedge slot perfectly a couple of taps with a small brass hammer the the wedge moved enough to remove with my fingers.
Did show signs of being driven in.
You can see the part I used here.
