Trouble removing T-Bar on MX-1

I’m sure im missing something super obvious but the title is self-explanatory. Searched around online and checked some service manuals and have not been able to find a solid answer. If anyone has experience cracking these things open, please let me know. Thanks

You just need to hold one side and twist the other. Of the tbar


Woooooooow I thought it might have been that, but I only gave a half hearted attempted to unscrew it. Time to bust out the pliars. Thanks a lot!
