I tried both ways loads on penatrating spray and heat fron a blow torch.

Heat the the mounting up, the rubber bush will burn but if u careful you shouldn't damage anything on the car.

Then a good hard whack with a lump hammer and both mine flew of in a couple of goes!

On refit I added a bit of lithum grease to stop it happening again. Copper Ease will do aswell.

Good luck.
