Very carefully prick punch the center of the pin. then with a very small drill bit, drill it an 1/8 " deep. Then work to a larger bit and on up until the "shoulder" of the Pin is gone. Try punching it out after each bit size and see if it moves. As soon as you see any movement, then try going the other way out. Back and forth, and drill bigger and bigger until it comes out.. I would not go any bigger than 1/8" as I think that is the size of the pin.. Good luck.. :shock:
