Hi,

I am having difficulty in removing the metal can. I have used a rubber grip and tried to twist it and slightly rock and pull it with no luck. The can has a small dent in it and had a hard white scale on it's top. Any tips/advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have used a heat gun to get the whole thing rather warm and then they seem to slip out a lot easier.
