Replacing broken pegs in zip dee awning arm?

The front and back long arms have pegs that are used to hold the end of the short arm when traveling. My 76 Sovereign has the original zip dee awning on it, in good shape it seems, but both of these pegs are broken off. I have replacement pegs, just not sure how to get old broken pegs out. Anybody dealt with this? I tried drilling out but it's not working too well.

Suggestion, contact ZD. They have excellant customer service and parts for older awnings.

I contacted zd, they didn't have a great answer. I may have just gotten the wrong person.

They are pressed into place and if you can drill a hole big enough for an "easy out" they should twist right out. Mine did and I replaced them using round aluminum stock cut to about 3/4" long. I did put a dab of epoxy on the end before tapping them into place.

I actually ordered the replacement pegs from odmrv. They do go in at a 45 degree angle, correct?
