heat seems to break down most adhesives so assuming ur talking about a touring car the pinion motor shaft and motor mount (if its stuck in the car) are all metal, so take a heat source such as hair drier or lighter flame and heat the parts up to break the bond then unsrew and remove as usual.
i think this should work, i used it today to remove a lipo battery holder that was shoe goed on a little to well and the heat soften the shoe goo up enough for me to twist and pull the bracket off.
