So I'm trying to disassembly by myself a c60 1. And when I try to hammer the pin to get the shifter lever out I cannot get it out...Looks like is stuck or is anything previous to hammering that have to be done?
This makes way too much sense.... And the BGB even says to hammer ... Thank you. I will be doing this with a C clamp from now on.Don't hammer it! You may bend the selector shaft. Use a C clamp and press it out using a socket.
The manual (like most service manuals) assumes the part isn't corroded fast. But in real life, the pin can get so corroded, it almost seems like it is part of the lever.This makes way too much sense.... And the BGB even says to hammer ... Thank you. I will be doing this with a C clamp from now on.
although, when I've had them really really stuck I've pulled the whole selector shaft to work with it on a bench rather than in the engine bay. Either way the clamp is completely superior.
