Got 3 or 4 snapped pins in a pair of DMR V12's.. too close to the body to get a grip on them..

Is it best to ignore them or is there an easy-ish removal solution?

Your only real option is going to be drilling them out very carefully.

cant you get an allen key in them? or does the slot cut off too soon?

They are dead flat matey . . .

I kinda knew that careful drilling would probably be the only solution but was secretly hoping that someone would have a simpler miracle fix... some snake oil perhaps . .
