Do you have a multi tool? It’s usually much more effective to use the tool to remove a bearing than pliers, it also reduces the risk of damaging the bearing. If you don’t have a tool you can also use a 1/4 inch drill bit (flat side) or metal rod the same way. Just place inside bearing and rock back and forth and the bearing should start to wiggle off.
Once the bearing is off I would recommend sanding down the bearing seats a little to prevent the bearing from getting stuck in the future.
If it’s really stuck and you can’t get it then feel free to give us a call or send an email and we can help you out.
Dude, just jam that multi-tool in there and start wiggling! I thought you were supposed to spin the bearing loose when I first started, so I know for a fact that the bearing tool can really get stuck inside a bearing. If anything, the 1/4" metal rod should work, just get a bit and the longer length should give you more leverage
If the bearing is really that stuck then you can always send it back to use to take a look at. Just call or email to arrange for a return and we can remove the bearing and sand down the seats a little so it doesn’t continue to be a problem.
