Here is a picture of my card and old fan that will help me explain the problem.
There are 4 screws attaching my old fan to a square metal piece (green thing in the picture). The metal piece itself is held to the card by two plastic pins. I was hoping I could just remove the screws to put in my new fan but when I got home I found out that wasn't the case. I need to remove this metal thingie but the pins don't present any obvious way of removing them. Pulling or turning the pins doesn't do anything. The pins go through to the other side of the card but I can't push them out from there either. I think the ends of the pins protrude outward like this:
How do I remove them?
