Installed takedown pin wrong on micro 9, help!

New guy here,
I stripped my micro 9 down for the first time today for a cleaning. I realized I installed the take down pin wrong and now I can't get it back out! The barrel is loose and moves around. The spring back rod is stick out. I've been googling and youtubing but I haven't been able to figure it out. Do you guys have any suggestions for me?

There are e few things to read on in the Micro 9 threads, I am scamming them now, you might want to check it too, just for future help? I don't own a Micro, I can't, do to the parole officer of California!

Did you install the slide stop pin behind the barrel lug? If so you are going to have to carefully drive it back out after lining all slide openings up correctly. Use a chop stick and brass or plastic mallet. But check with others before listening to me. I don't have a Micro 9 but I think I read this resolution on this forum before. Good luck!

I thought it would come to something like this. What exactly does lining up all slide openings mean? In the position I'd put it in to remove the take down pin?

You have to push the barrel back till it goes up into the slide so you can pull it forward over the mid section you originally went past

Make sure the openings in the slide match the openings in the frame . This allows the slide stop pin to easily go in and out.
Don't hesitate to take a picture and post it so we all can see what is going on.
