Well, you don't say what model, but in all the ones I've dealt with (newest being a Saab 99), those pins are tapered, and only want to come out one way. Take the nut from the end it's on, to the end it isn't, and tighten, which will pull it out of the tapered hole. If what I describe above doesn't look like what you have, then disregard. But, I'd be surprised if they aren't still using tapered pins for this; it makes sense to do. Dave Hinz
