I know I'm probably gonna get flamed for this but... I've searched the forum and read a few threads, but I can't see how to remove the plastic pin that joins the glove box hinge to the damper plunger. I tried to pull it out with a pair of pliers, expecting it to slide out fairly easily, but it wouldn't budge and, since I feared snapping the hinge, I thought it best to ask you guys. The experts. So how thick am I being?
