    Hi-doing each separately, warm gently with a hair dryer, then apply a squirt of good old WD40 into the pin hole, and on the shaft behind the barrel.  Do all, then leave them for a while.  Check to see if the pins will then be able to be pressed in. If not, use another small squirt into the pin. If it does depress in, it has to be held in whilst applying outward pressure. Try not to apply any side pressure as such may crack the barrel of the knob.

    Good luck-Peter.
