Any recomendations on how to replace the front door detent roller pin? The roller is bent severely and replacement pin/roller is only 10 bucks or so. I did the hinge pins a couple of years ago but the roller failed since then.

Looks like I should be able to grind off the top, whack it out and then install a new one. Looking at posts on the web others grind a slot in the hinge to relieve the pressure on the pin, install and then weld the slot closed. No access to welder, so I would just like to see if it can be done simpler.
