What is the easiest way to remove the u-joints that have that injected plastic insert that GM put in the yoke to keep them in place. Do you heat the plastic up or do you pound the u-joint out?

I have never had to use heat to remove any universal joint , even the type you are talking about , just pound it out the way you would any other u-joint , if you feel the need to use heat , use it carefully as you dont want too much heat , that it dammage the make up of the metal and make it brittle , dont let metal turn color and keep temp under 500 degrees
