    stuck door strap pin- rear door

    Anyone got some suggestions?

    More limited space than the front- I've tried to tap it- no worky. Got it soaked with Cryoil. No help yet. Wiggle.. nothing, tap nothing... pliers. No help either?

    It's likely that you know but the top 2 or 3 mm of the pin is knurled. It may take some force with a punch to get it started. It helps greatly to have the check strap in it's neutral point ; door half open. I had no luck with anything but a punch. If you have another out or a spare use it as a short punch.

    Have you removed the circlip lock (Item #2) from the bottom of the pin?

    Afterward, the pin should then come out rather easily with the use of a drift punch.
