Really can't get the trip reset button out of the old lens

I am really pulling hard and this reset button will not come out of the old lens. I actually have 2 of the old lenses and I am trying it on both of them but neither of them will separate.

Sure, i could just cut or break the old lens to get it out but then I would still need to get it apart before re-installing in the new lens of course! Any advice? thanks!

On some of the trip buttons, they are threaded. It might be a bit stubborn, but you should be able to unscrew it while pulling, and it should come apart. Just keep an eye out for the spring as it will likely fly out of the receptacle once the knob comes out of the base.
