urQ guys are usually able to push the roll pin from the passenger side
wheelwell, with a very long extension on a 6 mm dia. punch. I did it in
place, from above, with a stubby 2 lbs hammer and a 6 mm long shank punch
before someone told me about the wheelwell trick. Took me more than 1 hour
just to remove that pin, and another 1/2 hour to push out the slave from
above with a 1/2in dia 36 in long steel rod. Now I can do it in 30 minutes

Wanna stop by Montreal ? Oh no, you can't, since the slave is dead... :-)

Good luck ! If need be, I can take pictures of the spare transmission I have
here in the basement. Let me know.

Yep, it's just like that...!
