GasGas silencer packing

Can anyone offer some advice on past experience with repacking the silencer on a GasGas. Once the endcap is off, It seems impossible to get the old packing out. Nevermind getting new packing in.

I'm hoping someone has some wisdom they can impart.

I have repacked a few and getting the old packing out can be difficult. There is nothing holding the end of the perforated tube in the front of the silencer so it just needs a good grip with pliers on the exposed end and a bit of force. I wrap the new packing tightly round the perforated tube with extra packing top and bottom to get the right shape, then wrap it in duct tape or thin wire and it slips in easily and it will seat properly providing the shape is right. Good luck, the result is worth it.
