    A jack and block of wood works well so the person holding it doesn't need to hold the weight, just steady it.

    Put the pin in today, was easier than i first thought

    !. Put the rod through pin and tighten the nut

    2. Slide the bar over rod head and tap down

    3. Tap firmly but not too hard or you might break the rod head off.
    4. Once pin is removed put the new one in place and tap it into position, you wont need to use the rod putting it back in. Just tap with a hammer.

    Yes need lube e.g. WD40 or such to soak in first. I took the pic's then sprayed the pin and let soak for about 10 mins
    Also use a jack to hold the door as said earlier to take the weight just in case...
    Wozza quoted the part number on page 1, part number is 90518425 available from Holden or eBay or any GMH group depending on location

    I just replaced mine and it fixed the grabby catch almost perfect. Since I didn't have the special tool, I used a piece of stainless rod about 3-4mm thick. Once started you can get a pair of regular pliers on the flare and using a panel hammer carefully tap it out.
    A large, long flat screw driver with the flat side on the flared end works to drive them back home, by keeping the screwdriver horizontal, once they are in about 5mm.
    I didn't need a second person, although it might have helped. I just used a screw jack under the outside corner of the door, like Immortality said.
