Obd pin is broke what to do?

Ok so I was about to mhd flash my car today and go to plug in my bimmergeek cord and it kept saying to plug in my device and I start to look further into the problem and look at the obd port and see one of the holes were a pin is suppose to go ... the piece is bent so the metal connector is not properly fitting in the port, so how do I go about removing the pin that's in the obd port thats bent and replace it?

The pins can be individually ordered and replaced. The issue is you need a special tool to get the old pin out.

smassey321 - Do you have a supplier/part number for a tool you've used successfully?

For reference I did try this tool but it wasn't small enough... I had to use a combination of long needles

Talk to supplier or manufacturers. Hopefully, they will help to fix it.
