how do I remove hinge pin in 99 suburban rear barn door

I f'ed up my pops rear barn door with a trailer

now ive got one from a junk yard, but the junk yard torched the backets so I have to use the ones I have. so I have to remove the hinge pin from the rear hinge. its a pin that goes through the hinge and the door pivots on it. Ive been smacking it with a 2lb sledge but no luck. Is there a trick?

Sorry for the gay Q, im a toyota guy and dont know of any chevy places (less hardcore) to ask this.

thanks

Did you get the c clip off? As I recall ours had a c clip on the bottom, I may be wrong

Grind the head off, use a punch and hammer it out, install new pins

you may need to put some heat on it, they tend to get rusted solid in there.

or you maybe able to hammer it out from the bottom-up.

Grind the head off the top of the pin, if you have a air hammer with a old bit grind that bit down to fit the pin and try that. but grind the head off the pin and hammer the pin down not up.
