What is required for idler arm repair?

I bought an idler arm repair kit and can't get the old bushings out. It is hard to hit them out because the collars are so close on the inside and nothing to grip on the outside. Would this be a job for an indie? Also what is the part name the the bushings are holding? it is the arm that holds the right tie rod. The car is a 1979 300SD w116. I think a lot of Benzes have the saem setup for the idler bushings though.
