    For that type of pin, you’ll need some heat from a soldering iron.

    Chances are though, you may ruin those pieces during the removal process.

    It does not matter. I got this for a dollar. As you can see the parts are damage. so designing some new ones.

    I think that kind of pin is a short peg with a flat head on top. If I'm right, there's one in each horn and it doesn't go all the way through. Heated Pin Removal should work perfectly. There are lots of tutorials around, but basically, what you do is hold the tip of the iron on the pin. It will evenly heat the plastic around it and the horn will pop off around it. Once it's off, you can pull the pin off with pliers. I suggest keeping them. They come in handy.
