Sportsman Dan, Thanks. I'll try PB Blaster, I actually used Liquid Wrench repeatedly over the course of a few days with no luck. And thanks for the suggestion re the year of the parts but they're def orig. '01
Carch4, also thank you for the suggestion. As a last resort, I may try the other side and pound it through as per your suggestion but I'm really reluctant to, 'cause what if that side is just as bad? Then I've ripped into both sides and got nowhere. Like I said, I'll keep that for the last resort.
I was hoping that someone who does this for a living may have a trick or two up their sleeve, but I appreciate all ideas at this point. Thanks In advance!
