You need a flat-head screwdriver, put it between the guidepin and front axle. use the axle as a base and wedge the guidepin out.

Yep, that works, but be wicked careful that you do not bend the axle.
I usually remove the front axle and slide a junk* one in place to pry against.

*(The one I bent the first time. lol)

another method

I was very reluctant to damage a front axle and it turned out I had none to spare so came up with another method which I found dead easy and not hard on any part of the chassis. Put the chassis in the vertical position, front down on a hard surface, then use a flat nosed screwdriver to push down from the top side of the chassis onto the side of the pin, pushing down in the direction of the hard surface and it pops out easily.
