I used a bolt and a hammer. But the issue is you can only hit one side at a time.
You can only fit the bolt/pin in the hole while the hole is on the left side of the car. Passenger side for the UK models.
Hit it a few times, then rotate the coupling 180 degrees. Hit again, and rotate again. It was really annoying.
I did try the pneumatic hammer, but it wasnt enought power. For future, I would thread those holes and use bolts to press it out. But I always forget to do that.

Thanks for the reply and advice. On the left (passenger side - UK) of the pump is the ECU. So presumably remove the ECU first ? (to give a bit more room). But even with that removed, as the holes on the coupling are well inset compared to the haldex housing there is still only about 7cm between the coupling and the housing (not taking into account the length of the pin/bolt). Very tight to get a straight blow with the hammer. I'm surprised you managed it !
The idea of threading the holes and pressing out the CV joint in future is a good one - may do it myself (but got to get the coupling off first!). Gave me thoughts about using one of my threaded pullers in reverse to push against a pin/bolt, but not enough space to get it in and nowhere flat on the housing to push against.

Oh sorry. I think I removed the ECU(also to clean the solenoids and sensor)
And after that you can access one of the holes from the left side(looking back to front)

Has the oil and filter ever been changed ?? 
as on my mk 1 when i had that i changed the oil and filter at 30k and 
it was mucky and the filter was quite blocked so you may find that 
clean oil and filter may sort it.

The pump seems to have failed, and will need to be replaced.

I don't know anything about the Haldex system, but I wouldn't advocate powering up an oil pump without any oil for it to pump. The pump relies on the oil to keep it lubricated and could possibly seize up or at the very least cause premature wear.
I would just fit it.
