Default How do you take links out of a Timex expansion band?

I bought one of these but the band is a little too big. Does anyone know how to take links out? There were no instructions including and googling yields nothing except these reviews of another Timex. I'm assuming my band is adjustable too.

Thanks! The first link has no relevant info, but the second one does. It's still kind of iffy, so I'll probably just go to a watch place.

Yeah, sorry, just noticed it was wrong for the band you have. It can be a PITA, especially if you have large hands like I do. I've broken several of those bands, and have repaired them myself, but it's much easier to take them to a watch shop and have it done right...
