Thanks guys...tried that before but the $#%#^ rubber only would turn and i didn't want to screw them up. I guess I will have to put more force to my fingers and twist.
thanks again

hi! i did get them out but it was a total P.I.T.A:

Turn the locks counterclockwise. i found grabbing the locks as low on the stem as possible helps. if you have power door locks - make sure you tap the button so that they are in the open position.

after a few times the pin will give and start to turn. NOTE: if you have power door locks - when the pin is halfway unscrewed, hit lock. the metal screw the pin goes onto will go into the door. i found it easier to get the pin out without wrecking the hole in the door, with this method.

what type of pins did you get? i have the PT pins with the hex shaped top.

Had to use pliers to start unscrewing mine, but after that, not bad.

I too went for the pt with the hex top....the others kind of reminded me of my one hitter days...well at least the one hitter, don't remember too much after that.
