Z4M rack swap / rebuild: Possible to remove Torsion Bar?

Does anyone know if when rebuilding a rack it is possible to separate the Torsion Bar from the pinion gear? The photo below is all I can find but it shows the bar as part of the pinion gear.


I'm performing a Z4M rack swap in a RHD car: Z4M (left), E46 (right)


due to the type of headers I need to retain the shorter pinion shaft from the E46 and I'd like to rebuild the Z4m rack with the shorter E46 pinion. Obviously I can only do this if I can seperate the shorter E46 Torsion Bar from the E46 pinion gear, and swap it with the Z4 parts.

Thanks.
