    Try boiling it in water or soak in vinegar maybe.

    Thanks

    this is how I finally got it separated from bracket boiled this five times and twisted with grips and it finally came apart from the said bracket . The fixing pin is permanently part of the top hinge thanks. I will have to re rivet the bracket back in place.
