This is a pain in the ass! Anyone know how to get it out? Finishing up my auto to manual swap and this is the only thing i cant get finished. 8mm punch isnt working even with a sledge hammer.

yep, like what sleepingciv said just get something that will fit in that hole and use a hammer and gently tap it out. it's also known as "the bitch pin." it's very easy though. takes all of 1minute

Do what Sleepingciv said or just grab an old spark plug if you don't have a punch. I've heard they work just as well, the plug will be destroyed at the end of it though...

I use a 8mm bolt with the threads ground off, works like a charm. I also would suggest if your having a problem to buy a replacement instead of reusing the "problem" one. Coat the new one with anti-size before installing.

If you start with a smaller punch or taper your punch, it helps keep the punch centered so you can whack it with your 3lbs+ hammer

if the punch fits inside the hole it just wedges the b-pin in there.

use a punch that wont fit inside the b-pin and hammer that fucker from the bottom upwards.



either that, or just drop the linkage from the car and take it out with the tranny...




you can also use a 8mm allen key if you want.


i use an 8mm allen and some extensions and do it from the top when i feel lazy :D
