Generally they need to be pressed out and the new ones pressed in with
a hydralic press. If you have the arms off and other means of
transportation, some of your local shops like Pep-Boys, etc can do
this for you if you take them in.
If you put an axle stand on the top (underside) of the arm and then lower
the vehicle it should work. I have done this in a pinch when strapped for
tools out of town in the middle of nowhere. Odd why the removal tool isn't
working though. Have you used the tool before?? Is it a removal tool or a
pickle fork you were hitting it with? The removal tool with a ratchet or
breaker should pop it off no problem. Sometimes it helps if you dab some
grease on the 'connecting side' of the tool first.
Gpod luck. As I said, in a pinch, with the stand in the right place, the
weight of the vehicle will pop the bj off for you.
