• the VAR tool is the best for this as the load is spread by a metal C shape. Ive lost count of how many of those plastic park things ive seen break. Make sure the bolt washer hasnt been left behind in the crank when removing the bolt too, as the tools dont work then. There really arent a lot of options given the tight space. Have the tips of the puller legs started to bend out of shape yet? cut an elongted C out of an old compact disc - its quite sturdy material. fit the puller without the plastic cradle. If you have access to another clamp then clamp the 2 legs tight so theres no chance of them slipping.
