WOW just the god dam ticket, better than id hoped for, i can print this off now, leave my friend digest it for a day or two (while soaking the area in WD40 as well) and see if we can have another go at it, Brilliant, cant thank you enough, as does my wallet. Will keep you updated.
thanks again,

I have seen the pin snapping off before, it takes a bit of fiddling and some force to remove it but it will come out in the end.
A friend of mine (an ex army mechanic) got a snapped one out and repaired any damage to the pin hole with metal putty

Thanks for the info though its not the pin itself thats snapped but the clip. As it looks, theres nothing left now to grab hold of to remove the pin. With the best will in the world, my mate cant tie up his ramp just for me to figure out a way let alone the time it would take to actually get it out,
Thats why i was hoping someone on the forum has successfully removed the pin and explain in detail how they did it (without dropping the gearbox and drilling out).
i live in hope as its running like a pig somtimes, and im dam sure my fuels gone up by £10 a week just on the school run.

Arrrrrgh.... Ok, My mate got it up on the lift, havin had a look past the battery first and deciding puttin it on the lift was easier... BUT he noted that there was part of the exhast in the way, the maff sensor and a strut of some kind. (soz reapeating this from memory. Any way, he started to pull at the pin with a right angle end pliers on after a few mommnets ONE end of the pin AND NO PIN.
Basically whats left is the center of the fixing of the bit that looks like the end on a pen clip.
Does anyone have any idea what to do now, drilling it out doesnt seem an option even if it was more accesible.
Heeeeelp !
(basically the job stumped for the sake of a 1.50 pin, so much for having a new one ready !
