Turn the chair upside down. Fit the pipe wrench around the gas cylinder connecting the bottom of the chair to the seat.
Turn the gas cylinder clockwise with the pipe wrench until the bottom section of the chair with the gas cylinder attached comes free from the seat.
Turn the chair base upside down. Strike the exposed end of the gas cylinder in the center of the chair base with a rubber mallet until the gas cylinder falls away from the chair base. Set the gas cylinder and the chair base aside.
Unscrew the cable clip screw located in the center of the chair seat on the back.
Pull the chair's control cable through the hole in the backrest. Pull the cable clip off the rear seat. Pull the seat and backrest apart.
