    Hi

    Just trying to change the lower ball joints on my r-reg C240 sport I have removed the lower part of the ball joint with a separator but the hardened pin has come away from the balljoint and is stuck fast in the lower hub, have tried wd40 and mole grips but its not moving..... any ideas ? Thanks

    Try some heat on it, that works well, heat the pin itself!
