how do I remove an old door lock?

How do I remove an old door lock.

It is a keyed lock with the key on the outside and a trist knob on the inside.

I have removed a locking pin but the bolt will not pull out.

Hello pvb and welcome to the community!

 

Not sure which brand lock you have, but the latch plate below is a deadbolt latch for a Schlage lock. If you could post pictures, that would be most helpful. If your latch looks like the one below, & the screws have been removed, you can place a flat blade screwdriver behind the latch, and using the hole as leverage, push out the latch. 

 

Let me know how it goes.
