Think I found a way to get the solder out of the pins...well kind of.
Find a small pin or sewing needle and hold it on top of the pin while touching the pin with a soldering iron. Push the pin in as soon as the solder becomes molten then pull it right out.
It doesn't really remove the solder but it should give you an opening large enough to put the new wires in.....worked for me.
Here's a picture to show you what I mean. Sorry it's a little blurry but I'm sure you can see what I mean.
Good luck with it.
