    Changing GMW5000 GShock strap

    I am trying to change this strap-and I'm lousy at this stuff. I'm in the mountains with no jewelry store near me. I managed to get the bars that secure the resin band to the bracelet off after heating with a hair drier. Now I cannot detach the band:pulling, wriggling, pushing various directions-why do they even use the screw bars? Someone please put me out of my misery! (And, no, the search box was not my friend.) Can someone direct me to a video or something before I chuck it under the wheels of a train (probably woundn't dislodge that way either.)

    Thanks in advance. I'm probably going to feel very sheepish when I find out!

    The screws that comprise the screw bar go through a metal tube. Did you push the metal tube out of the lugs?
