Default How do I remove Pin from headlight

An easy job turned into endless banging. I have no idea how to take this pin out. I've used drill bits, hammers, self tapping screws, wd40, nails. I just cant get it out. Chrisfix love taps the thing like 4 times and his comes out.
Any help would be appreciated thank you

Use a pin punch. You can get a set at Harbor Freight cheap:
https://www.harborfreight.com/8-piec...set-93424.html

Or Lowes:

Any other hardware store should have something similar. Just pick one that's approximately the same size as the pin.

Would you happen to know the size of the pin? Is it 1/8? I found some but they sell individually and I could save money.

Do you not own a tape measure or a caliper?

Sorry, I don't know off-hand what size it is. I see Harbor Freight has two stores in Bakersfield, if your location is correct I'd just pop into one of those and grab the cheapo $9 set.

I got it, it is 5/32. Thanks guys. I was able to take it out with a push that the shop let me borrow.

Thanks for the help. I didn't know what a push was till now.
