Bi-Fold Door Bottom Guide Sign In/Join

I replaced my carpet with harwood flooring and now my bi-fold doors are about 1/4" too long. I would like to trim the bottom of the doors but I need a way to remove the "pin" thing that slips into the bracket on the floor and keeps the doors in place. They were hammered in and are quite tight. Is there a trick to removing them. I can't seem to pull them out and I surely don't want to buy new doors. Thanks for any advice you can give me.

If you are talking about the pivot pin they can be removed by prying them out of the door. There should be a ring of such made on the pin that prevents the pin from being driven too far in the door. A small pry bar or claw hammer can be used once you gain a little gap with a screwdriver or cat's paw bar.
