Lee ram prime disassembly?

I'm ready to use some large primers but I'm having a tough time getting the Lee ram prime apart to change sizes. Any tips? I don't want to break something...

ram

The tip is held by a collet. Take a flat tipped screwdriver, insert the tip in the slot in the collet - either side - and twist. That will open the collet enough so that the plunger can be removed.
You can remove the plunger with your thumb and forefinger while holding the body in the same hand.

Thanks very much, I was thinking it was necessary to squeeze the collet to remove it from the base. Duh. Obviously I wasn't getting very far that way...
