Can anyone help
I am in the process of preparing my car for a clutch change. Part of the job is to remove the gearchange mechanism/links. The Haynes manual points to removing a pair of ball joints. I'm really not sure how to get these off. There appears to be no way of doing it without wrecking them. Any ideas?

Sorry meant to add to that it is a 2002 Punto 8v active sport

Brute force! That's the only way! Just use a screwdriver under it and use as a lever. Or something bigger! They are a real pain in the ass!
