the rod I am trying to get pushed out... help!

Hi, I have a Suzuki SS-100 with the sticky keys problem.
I have the unit completely apart down to the keys only and have removed the circuit boards under the keys. My question is now how do I remove the shaft or rods that the keys swivel around on? They are definitely sticking on that shaft and I would like to remove the rods and attempt a repair as suggested by other posters. I tried to push them out but only got as far as a half inch or so and now the rod doesn't budge.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated..Thanks in advance!

Using one of the short steel ‘punch’ rod begin tapping out the old rods using a hard rubber mallet or a dead blow hammer. This will be very resistant at first, but gets easier as the rods are expelled from the keybed. Repeat with the 2nd & 3rd punch rods and finish with the plastic dowel until all rods are removed.
