The pins will come out with the proper punch. Make sure you are using a small long metal punch. Place the punch on the side with the small opening and hammer it out. It may be tight but this is the proper removal. When reinstalling a trick to getting the pins fully in is to use a small thick punch to seat the pin fully.
