Field Stripping Kimber1911 With Guide Rod

OK, I am an idiot, I reckon, but I can't figure this out.

I had a Springfield Armory Champion, and it came with a takedown tool that eased things a bit.

Now, I have this Kimber Gold Combat. The rod won't push in to allow rotation of the barrel bushing, so I just pulled the slide back to the correct position, and pushed out the slide latch.

Now, I can't get the recoil spring/guide rod assembly out.

What am I doing wrong, or not doing right?
