    There is rarely a need to remove the relay. It can be refurbished in situ, as it can be disassembled while in place. The only reason to remove it is to properly repaint the hole it sits in, rebuild this if it is badly rusted, or, very rarely, if the housing of the relay is damaged and needs to be replaced.

    The usual issue with the relay is that the bottom seal has failed and it has no oil in it. This may have resulted in wear of the bushes so that they need to be replaced, and possibly the wearing and sealing surfaces of the shaft may need polishing or even the shaft replacing. These are easier to do with the relay removed, but it is not easier to "remove the relay and then do it".

    The seals are easy to replace in situ.

    Hope this helps.

    Havent had a chance to do much work lately but
    Finally got it out! Ended up gutting it and cutting it on one side, then smacked the crap out of it with a hammer to loosen it up and jacked it out.
    Good news is the metal in the hole is in perfect condition.

    Still, I know what you mean. At A Base Workshop, the Army always pulled these to repair them. Heavy gal chain, a PortaPower, about a gallon of good penetrating oil, some gas and around two days seemed to be the norm.
