Folks,
It's not my fault... I'm sure that the pins moved by themselves in the middle of the night... but some of the pins in my high density D-Sub connector are in the wrong places.
I have the right tool: https://www.steinair.com/product/insertionremoval-tool-for-high-density-d-sub-pins-mil-spec/
I have successfully removed regular density pins from DB-25 connectors. 
These darned high-density pins refuse to come loose.
Before I make things worse, do you have any suggestions?

Don’t punish yourself because this is a real PIAxx task to achieve.
I have ruined several of those tools myself.
Never mind the plastic ones, they are useless!
Use the metal ones, and do it very patiently..
You have to involve the wire before inserting the tool to the pin, and then insert it all the way down, very carefully.
Only pull the tool when you manage to insert it to reach the bottom of the hole.
In some cases, I even had to push the male pin from the other side of the Dsub connector.
Patience and mild perseverance are the secrets!
Cheers
Carlos

Correction: when I wrote (below) “Only pull the tool when you manage to insert it to reach the bottom”, you shall read “Only pull the wire when you manage to insert the tool till it reaches the bottom”

Thanks for the empathy, everybody. It's too hot to take another crack at it right now... wunderground says that it feels like 107 out there.... I'll attack the pins again in the morning. Maybe if I swing a chicken over the connector....
