F10 Shifter Paddles Disassembly?

Has anyone taken these apart or know how?

My situation..My left side shifter randomly popped out of place and parts flew everywhere. I thought I had found them all, took a few minutes to look at the parts, figured out how they all went back together and attached it to the steering wheel. Unfortunately, as soon as I put it back on I realized it did not feel the same as the right side. The left side did not have that spring tension, so now it "engages" with the slightest touch. I ended up finding the spring, but now I can't disassemble the part all the way down to reach the area where the spring goes.

I know how to get the paddle shifter off of the steering wheel. My dilemma removing the actual paddle(-/+ part) from the black assembly case(highlighted in red in pics). Or does anyone know how to remove the circular pin found at the bottom of the shifter? That's whats actually keeping the paddle attached to the assembly. If anyone has done this or can provide any assistance I could really use it. Don't feel like paying a few hundred for the part.
