Like manny of my fellow KP.45 users, my mag is leaking, I heard that this is the only official way to fix the problem, so I feel like giving it a try.
Problem is I have no idea as to what I'm doing

Can someone give me a helping hand?

Very simple.  Remove part#953 base plate, punch out part#946 base pins from either side, remove part#950 and remove old seal.  This is very important: clean the surfaces where the new seal will sit. Install new seal and spread a very very thin layer of silicone oil to the new seal then reverse the instruction.  Let me know if you need more help. :)

Part #950 won't come out. Is there a trick to getting it out?

It's suppose to be tight to form a seal.  Tap the side of the base with a rubber mallet and you should be able to pull it out. :)

Will a plastic screw driver handle be ok?

Sorry for the late reply.  Yes, you can use anything that can provide a solid tap but will not damage metal.

When you eventually get it out, take extra notice of what Radix said about cleaning the surface where the seal will sit. I failed to do this and my mag continued leaking after installing the new seal.
