You need to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library. Some have 2 use a hot box 2 heat up the piston & put the rod in the freezer then U should b able 2 press them 2 gethher--Some have snap rings on each end of the piston pin.IF this doesn't make sence-Find your localmachne shop.

connecting rod is provided between crank and the piston,which converts the reciprocating motion of the piston into rotary motion of the crank.

The connecting rod has a "wrist pin" which goes through the side of the piston and through the connecting rod. It is one of the most critical fit parts of an engine.The connecting rod or con rod connects the piston to the crank or crankshaft!!!

I believe a gudgeon pin is what the British call a connecting rod pin (or wrist pin or piston pin) in a reciprocating assembly, (piston, connecting rod, crank ) It connects the piston head to the connecting rod.
