Removing soil pipe from wall

Members location is Ireland.

Hi all,

I'm having difficulty removing a section of soil pipe from an exterior wall. I've removed the toilet and closed off the connection to the stack on the outside but I am left with this section of pipe running through the wall. Any suggestions for the best technique/tools to remove it? I've tried chiseling around rim inside and outside and it won't budge. It's also very close to some heating pipes.

Many here will look and say what the heck because this is primarily a North American forum where residential toilet drains are in the floor. However we may be able to offer suggestions. Is this cast iron? Is the stack outside or in the wall?

It's PVC and the stack is outside. So essentially on the other side of the wall you can see is the other end of this pipe cut in the same way.
I cut the overflow pipe in the same way and it just slid out with a bit of chiseling but this one seems to be much more stubborn.

btw it's all on the ground floor so access outside is easy.

Are there any connections in wall or is it just a straight pipe? If a straight pipe try hitting it with a hammer. You could also cut slits in pipe which may break it loose.

Hi, yeah it is straight, however where it is sticking outside there is a sort of raised lip like on coupling piece. Good idea about cutting the slits, will try it. Thanks.

Pipe

Place a thick wooden block in front of the pipe on the inside and drive the pipe out with a sledge hammer.
