Default Help Removing Air Inlet on an Impact

A few months back, I had a air tool quick connect blow apart in my Impact wrench. After having a couple other guys at work try to help get the thread part out of the impact, I broke down and bought another Impact. I decided to try and fix this impact to have as a spare, and I found a site that sells new air inlets for my impact, but I just can't figure out how to get the old one out.

Has anyone removed one before, or know how to? Obviously I tried loosening the but, but it just keeps spinning. Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you

Where I live there are a few air tool rebuilding companies.. That has to be one of those things they see a lot from people dropping them.. It only cost me like 45 bucks to have a good (250 dollar) air wrench totally rebuilt.

You can probably find the torque specs and diagram of your model impact gun and tear it completely down and purchase just the part you need and replace it. I did it with an old blue point 1/4" impact wrench. They aren't really complicated and there are a few websites and possibly videos on rebuilding them yourself
