You will need to get a hammer and punch to drive the broken pins out. They are likely packed in with some corrosion and not letting go. Oil them up with penetrating oil (WD40, 3N1, or Marvel Oil) and allow them to soak for about 15-20 minutes and then use the hammer and punch to drive them out.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
