Would compressed air work at a low psi? These are just questions, not recommendations I am just wanting to get information on this as well Thanks T41CK cresil January 5, 2013 2:41:01 AM doubt air duster would work unless you bend the pins and even then it can cause damage., so far temperatures are at 32 degrees celsius code array January 5, 2013 4:29:02 AM Maybe you could try te get a small pin or something similar and trying to get it out with that.
