Re: [DML] Replacing tranny seals, roll pin wont budge

Nathan.  If you don't already have one, you need a pin punch.   The tough 
part is getting one that is long enough in the right size.  I  have a Craftsman 
set that gets the pin about 3/4 of the way though, then I need  to use a 
phillips screwdriver for the last couple of hits.  Make sure you  are banging the 
pin out from the bottom and straight up.  As the pin slides  out with each hit, 
make sure the pin will not get stuck in the castleated (sp?)  part.  If you 
get it lodged inside there, it will be very difficult to get  out.  I'm telling 
you this from experience!  It's not necessary to  replace the pin after it is 
removed unless you damaged it. A new one is harder  to drive in than the old 
one was to get out!

Hello  everyone,

I finally decided to fix my leaky tranny seals however the  roll pin on 
the drivers side will not budge. I am afraid that if I keep  banging on 
it I will damage the tranny internals. Is there a particular  way the 
pin is supposed to come out? Can it be punched from either  side?
