Yup, what a pain in the RS it is to remove that plastic!!!
And it took the best part of an hour to file down the shaft so that the new gear would fit over the top
Now my predicament is that the hole in the cog in 2.5mm
The drill bit supplied is 3mm
The roll pin in 3.5mm
What do I do other than bust out the pillar drill

mk3 mondeo ghia x estate 2.0 auto with:

362mm 6 pot ap stoppers lurking behind some 8 x 18 comps
tv fitted to facelifted dash + headrest screens for both kids
full st kit + powerfolds w/puddlelights with jp stainless exhaust
shonky n/s/f rattle fixed by totd whoopie!
most of the chrome bits done

this is what the plastic cog is moulded onto so yeah, it's not going to come off in a hurry lol

 

eventually i drilled out a 2.5mm hole all the way through

 

then i followed through with a 3mm drill bit

 

then i opened it up to 3.2mm all the way through

 

finally, because the roll pin wasn't going through, i stuck a 3.5mm hole in one side of the cog and just a little bit into the shaft to get things started, knowing that when it hit the 3.2mm hole it would get stuck and then hammered it home
