Ultra TLE ll help

I went to clean my tle and discovered that the rod
that The take down tool goes into, was gone.
That put the brakes on me taking down the gun.
I order a new recoil spring assembly from Kimber, the picture looks like the right part.
My question is how do I proceed to take the gun down?
Do I have to be extra careful of flying springs?
Thanks
Barry

What?? Can you post a pic? I'm having a hard time, even after looking at my Kimber Raptor Ultra how that's even possible.

You should always be extra careful of springs when field stripping is reassembling any 1911 or most any auto pistol. Always keep safety glasses near by your work area. I'd betcha' most every 1911 shooter here knows the
feeling of a spring flying just past the end of their nose. They can get away from ya.

You don’t need that little wire take down tool to disassemble your Ultra. I would like to see more pics after you take it down though.

It would be wise to invest in a take down tool for future maintenance. Not cheap, but worth it! I know. I have one.

If that is correct, a call to Kimber, who will probably ask you to send those pictures to them would be in order. It would be clearer if a picture like your 2d one was taken from the side so it is easier to see what is and is not there.

Big + One for the Ultra Tool. Have one for my Ultra's, one for my Pro models. Best money I've spent in a long while. Makes takedown and reassembly a snap.

Again, not cheap, but well worth the price of admission.
