I have an unevenly compressed Sachs-style clutch partially in my car, jammed against the slave cyl and flywheel. Anyone have any tips on how to remove it?

Maybe I can take out the pins on the flywheel, tap them into the engine or the other way with a drift, or is the bedplate in the way...

Use the stock saab clutch tool?

Or cut off the fingers off the pressure plate.

bolt the slave back on and press the clutch?

any way you could compress the plate a bit more and then wedge a cable into in the uncompressed side?

if i understand your situation I believe you can compress it initially by carefully getting the end of a prybar/screwdriver or two between the plate and flywheel

you might also have to resort to snipping the end off the special tool so it can fit in the channel-- a bit difficult when it's already partially in the pressure plate. also i'm not sure how hard the material tool is, so it may be a no-go
