Is there another tool that can be used to remove the factory h/u if you dont have the one you get with the car? If I dont have to buy one that would be very nice.

Its a 93 lincoln town car and it needs a certain type of tool to remove the h/u. Im asking if there is another option rather than buying the tool for that car?

Cut two 10" pieces of wire coat hanger, bend them each in a u shape. This should be all you need.

no, it wont damage it, but it also wont work...

just go to wal mart and get the tools... its like $4...

nails and coathangers wont work because they dont have thehooks on the end to physically pull the unit out.

I've used this method more times than I care to remember. It works just fine.
