I've got the feeling that that link willstart provided is not what you are talking about.
Can you provide more info? If it is what willstart mentioned, then you should be able to push it out with a small hammer and thin punch. Could the rod be bent? Hard to understand what you are asking. Sorry.
I guess after reading azkronic and willstart, I was wrong. My idea would involve taking the clutch off and they have better ways. I just figured you could push it in from one side and out the other side. Sorry.
