These can be real buggers.  Our club president even had his head hanging
from the rafters of his garage, sadly stuck to the car, which by this
point had it's rear wheels off the ground. He finally relented and
coughed up the cash to buy the Bayless head removal tool, and was done
in about 15min. after having tried everything else he could think of.
This may be your only solution.
