    Mine was stuck too.
    I was advised to drive the car... which would heat the area and then borrowed a lambda probe spanner,
    This worked a treat.

    I ask questions because i change my mind so much. If i ask questions you have already covered... just leave it be?

    Go and buy a hand held blow torch from your nearest DIY joint. Fire it up, heat the thing right up. She'll come out then. The benefit being you get concentrated heat this way.

    Handy to keep as well for future things (such as stripping paint or varnish in the home), and also useful for lighting bonfires....
