Default Steering Gear removal 02 SC2

The car is a 2002 SC2 with manual transmission and power steering.

I'm pulling out the steering gear in order to replace the tie rods all proper like according to the manual.

(Spent an hour trying to get a wrench around the rearward hose coupling, finally caved and bought a 18mm crowfoot and had it off in twenty seconds.)

Both outer tie rods, both gear to frame bolts, both hoses, and the pinch bolt to the linkage are now disconnected.

Except that steering gear won't disengage from the linkage. I'm a little afraid to damage something.

What is the trick to get the linkage separated from the gear?

Got it without breaking anything.

It required a special tool called a "double box end wrench" which was placed with one end on the transmission, and the other on the frame. Then lay a flat screwdriver across the wrench and gently pry up on the linkage. A drop of liquid wrench also helped.
