The inside of the pin sure looks to be threaded, like all the guide pins I have seen. Try threading a 6mmx50 bolt into it (I think that is the size for pulling the guide pins, off the top of my head). If it threads in, unthread it, and use a socket and some washers as a puller. Just don't tighten the bolt real tight, when it starts snugging up, back it out and add a few more washers.

If it doesn't pull, is there another pin holding the other end that could be pulled to remove the whole assembly?
