The guides are a interference fit in the head casting. The head will have to be heated in an oven to a uniform temp. The guides are usually pressed in to the casting. This is best left to a machine shop with the correct equipment. Generally not a DYI type of task..

No matter what you fix, there will always be something else to fix..
"Warranty" is just another way of postponing the inevitable.
