Bob, pry the plastic housing off the headers so you can remove them one by one you'll be much happier with the results. You can also pull them out one at a time heating from below if you can't get the housing off. Much better results. If you're really fast you can pull the pin with your fingers (heat with iron, push down, pull really quick before you burn yourself).
