Trouble repacking FMF

I'm about to repacking my FMF 4.1, but can't seem to loosen the front end cap.

According to the directions you tap around the end cap lightly with a mallet to break the silicon seal and then bang the rear mount until the cap/core comes out.

This worked perfectly the last time I repacked it (which was the first time since i bought the pipe), but now, despite banging the crap out of it, it won't loosen.

Anyone else had this drama and know how to get around it. I don't want to bang it any harder, or any more, for fear of damaging it.

Maybe I put too much silicon on it before??? Either way, any tricks of the trade would be very very welcome.
