Default Help with Himoto 1/18

Hi, i have a Himoto 1/18 Centro and broke the rear upright. I can't figure out how to remove the upright and replace it. There is a pin that attaches the rear upright to the lower suspension arm that i have tried to push out, but its not happening and i'm afraid to force it too much. Any help would be appreciated.

Check both sides of the pin for a screw head. If there is one, then unscrew the pin and pull out using a pair of pliers. If not, get a small screwdriver that fits into the hole and tap on it until the pin comes out.

Thanks for replying and I did figure it out. The pin has no screw and is only held in with another screw. Once you take out the scree you're right you just push the pin out through the small hole at one end. I was trying to push it out from the wrong end.
