    pinion gear removal?

    Hi.

    Is there a trick to pinion gear removal? I've removed the grub screw that holds it in place but cannot budge it from the motor shaft.

    There is nothing else holding it in there. Did the screw snap off inside?

    I don't think so. Was able to remove screw with no problem. Gear seems fused to shaft...

    I would take the motor out and lightly put pliers on the part of the pinion without the gear and wiggle it slowly.
