Lewmar 54 ST winch problem

Hi, I'm looking to see if any one else with Lewmar 54ST Winches are having the same problem. In cleaning and lubing the winch, he same pin on both winches seems to be frozen in place. This is preventing me from removing one of the gear sets. I can strip down the gears with the big gear on the bottom on both winches but the other pin apears to be frozen in place. I can't seem to lift up. The only solution I can think of is to remove the entire unit and try to push the pin up fromt he bottom and I'd really like to avoid that if I can.

Thanks. Tom

Yes, they have been very helpful, so far out of the 8 (2x54,1x30,2x48 and 3x44) winches on board only the 54's are giving me trouble.
