Front forks disassembly

Hi everyone.

Need some help with front forks disassembly on a 1997 AT. I like to clean them and change the oil and seals (never being replaced), but I have difficulties to loosen up the damper rod bolt. Mistake I did was not loosening them when the forks were on the bike. Now they are turning together with the damper rod. Iíve put back on the springs and compress them in order to make more pressure on damper rod but without success. Is it necessary to remove the dumper rod in order to separate the tube from the slider?

Also there is some part moving inside the tube when it is compressed. If it is extended there is nothing moving inside. Is this normal or there is something out of its place?

Thanks.
