    You mean the part that seems useless that is closest to the back of the car (once installed) on the shift rod? Not sure of the purpose, but it mus have one.

    go buy an 8mm punch from your local MATCO tool man be sure to buy one that is straight shanked and has a half sphere point.. it works better than any other punch ive used.

    mine was very stubborn also we ended up putting a block of wood between the linkage and the underbody to stop the linkage from flexing so much and it came out fairly easy with a punch.

    yeah beat the hell out of it ...but be sure to use the tool specified..its the only one ive had luck with...the block of wood is also a great idea ive had to do that before...you might also try to spray some liquid wrench on it.
