You want to be turning the bolt counter clockwise to remove it. I hold the ratchet gear with a standard pair of vise grips when removing the bolt. The alloy casting is too easy to break so I avoid applying any pressure to it.

Thanks for that. The pliers 'trick' confused me (it doesn't take much), as i assumed the pliers wouldn't hold anything unless the gear rotated clockwise into it. :oops:
