need help with the bolt on my m24/47 mauser

this is my first time dissassembling a mauser bolt and i think i screwed up I accentially flipped the saftey flipper down in the fire position before unscrewing it away from the body and it would appear that ive locked it up. ANYBODY HAVE AN IDEA?

Hook the bottom of the cocking piece/firing pin on a sharp/hard corner, like the edge of a jaw of a bench vise & pull the bolt body forward/away enough to engage the safety in the cocking piece's forward edge.

Alternatively, if you have a vise, clamp the bottom of the cocking piece in it and pull the bolt away enough to get the safety into the middle position. Then disassemble in the normal manner.
