This worked on both my 94 and 01's.
I had a T55 IIRC welded to a 3/4" nut. can't seem to get enough leverage on it tho.

Weird all the times I've had to take thase adapters off I haven't really struggled using just my 2' breaker bar. maybe apply some localized heat and smashing the head of the bolt to break any rust loose.

No trickery needed for me, came right off with a 15 or 16mm socket and wrench.
