Interesting homemade tool. But reading down in the postings, it doesn't seem like it worked too well.
Wonder what he ended-up using to get it out? Called Assenmacher yesterday about their tool, as I'm going to do the same job soon. The previous design was too long to fit into tight spaces, but the new design which is sold online does a better job at popping the suckers out.
If I had a wish for mercedeshop.com it would be a tool exchange forum. How many times have we bought tools which would be only used once in a blue moon?
