I am at a lost as to how to get this dented raised so I can unscrew to get the rack out. I can not get anything to grab the dent without destroying the locking collar. I was looking at using a Dremel to cut it some so I can get a tool in there to bend it up.

Is this collar available to replace?

...Narrow Chisel Or (Not Your Best) Screwdriver, to fit inside the Slot, You need to get the 'Pry' Underneath the Indent, and Hit it with a Ball-Peen Hammer. When Aligned and reassembling...just tap it back into place, using a DULL Punch. I know most will use Two 'Pipe-Wrenchs' to Un-Screw the Collar. OR, To Hold One End….Chuck it up in 3-Jaw Lathe Chuck (Slide ROD Into Spindle) and LOCK the Spindle from turning, And Try a 'Strap-Wrench'. They use these on 'Rifle Barrels' because they DO NOT Mar the finish. If that doesn't Grip, You'll need the Pipe-Wrench.

Good-Luck!
