It s a good procedure , i did , hard way,,,, hands ouchhhh couple time.
As he said penetreting oil needed, wait , knock again, be careful , dont damage the tranny case.
To remoove the pin i used a graded wood screw and an hammer...the slave is hard to reach so....be patient , as you saw :-)
Once the slave was twisting i put bach the hose and use it to grap tha slave qith hands to twist and get out.
sorry for my english, you might prefere in french :-)
