Dremel tool. AFAIK that is the only way to get it off. The down side is that it is permanent :-(

Well, I took the pylon off of my 83 2001.
I've heard that either it comes off easy or it doesn't come off at all.
Here's how I did it.

1. Spray liquid wrench around the ring. (use a rag to catch the overspray).
2. Wait a day.
3. Repeat step one.
4. Wait another day.
5. Drive both pins all of the way out. I used a 1/4" drift punch if I remember right.
6. I took a 3 foot oak dowel that I had laying around and put it through the ring and gave it a good twist. I twisted it and lifted at the same time. Mine turned easy. If it doesnt move then you might have to cut it off.
