Saw one guy made a universal holder out of a 1x1 piece of wood, sharpened like a tent stake to wedge onto the damper rod top. So there's that option

The non-leaky one popped fine of course .
Next time, keep it pressured up and warm the fork lower with a gentle torch. It'll pop.

Wrap a rag around the seal so you don't make a mess.

Worked for me.
