lol i am dreading that part. I've not had a problem getting other vehicles ones apart in the past with a hammer just using the persuasive shock treatment, but i tried to pull these ones apart about 2 years ago when tracing another fault and it wouldn't move. I didn't want to have to replace it at the time so i held back a little so i didn't damage it, this time im hoping will be a little different
