Try to get the slave to depress the spring further. This may or may not be possible. 2. Use a crowbar to lever the clutch out of place, sliding your lever between the spring casing and the flywheel. This will damage many things (some of them part of you), but will eventually (after 2 hours) work. 3. Cut the spring fingers off with your favourite small cutting tool (Dremel etc). 4. Save yourself much trouble and buy/borrow/steal the Saab tool. -- Grunff
