Changing sights on new Mark IV

I have a Hi Viz/V- notch sight set coming for my new Mark IV. It looks like the front sight is simply a screw. The rear sight has a set screw and when that's out it looks like it is driven out of the dovetail slot. Does it make any difference whether I drive it out right to left, or left to right? I sure don't want to screw anything up. I might even chill the new rear sight with dry ice when I put it back in so I won't have to beat on it. Advice?

From behind the sights, drive out to the right, drive in to the left.

Thought I would have to replace the entire rear sight-turns out all I had to change was the sight "blade".
