Door lock pins and surrounds

I picked up some nice machined aluminum door lock pins and surrounds. The pins on a E90 don't unthread like the ones on a e36

Any ideals?

Thanks

Ben

I've read on an e-bay ad that all you do is pull up.
Let me know if that works

They might be glued in place. I know my 135s were glued on so I pulled the door panel off (part way - kept wires connected), pulled the arm out with the pin, and pulled the pin off with a pair of pliers. GL

Note...if you pull the pin while the door panel is on you will yank the pin arm out and will have to remove the door panel to fix. Trust me

Loosen by twisting counter clockwise. Or clockwise

Then crank up with force
