Bar end installation question

Need some advice on getting part #8 (expander) that's stuck inside my handlebar. I ended up pushing that inside my handlebar even more trying to get it out. Here's the picture of the part:

Next, trying to install motovation bar ends. I purchased new parts (7, 8, and 9) for both sides. Is this the proper way to put the nut/expander/washer in, as sen in this video? he just puts them all together and pushes it in with force. Can't seem to find any directions anywhere on the net.

His directions are pretty accurate... Nothing much more to know that that. If you have trouble getting it in, you can use water with dawn dish soap to help it slide in and then wait for it to dry, then tighten.

As for getting your #8 piece put, I would try getting a bolt that you could screw into it, or a dry wall anchor connected to "all thread" and a pair of channel locks and try to yank it out. I might not have explained that well, but I'm not sure how else to explain it...

Good luck !
