Run into this one all the time on VW's. This system has never failed me. Remove the nut on the bottom of the tie rod. Take a small shop hydraulic jack ($25 Wal Mart Wonder) and jack up the cradle of the jack to the bottom of the tie rod and jack the bottom of the tie rod up so there is a fair amount of tension on the bottom of the tie rod . Then simply hit the outside side of the pittman arm with a 3 lb hammer squarely. with the pressure of the jack on the bottom of the tie rod, within 1-4 blows of the hammer - it will pop out. Have never had it fail.
