Just needed a bigger hammer to hit the tool with. Bad news, the new one must have been a different length, now the steering wheel isn’t straight. I know you’re supposed to get an alignment anyways, but I literally had one done less than a month ago. They weren’t very clear that it needed a new tie rod though...

This is the tool I used

There’s a shop in town that quoted me $50 for an alignment once, I guess that’s not so bad
