How Do I Take the BEaring Out of My Mighty Flea?


#1

Plz halp! ???

I don’t have a Mighty Flea myself, but wouldn’t a regular old multi-tool work or is the bearing too small or something?

^Dumb question

You could try using needle-nose pliers and squeeze gently and pull up. I don’t know if the little bearing is more delicate than others but that should work. If you want, you could use a paper towel, tissue paper, or your shirt (for example) to protect your bearing from the sharp edges on the pliers.

Flea bearings can be kind of a pain but there’s two methods that will work:

The best way to remove the bearing is using a 5/32 drill bit (flat end) the same way you would remove a regular C bearing. The 5/32 bit seems to be the perfect size for the flea bearings.

If you don’t have access to a set of drill bits then the less preferable way would be pliers. Just grip gently and rock the bearing left to right and it will work itself off slowly. Have patience and don’t just pull or squeeze too hard as that will ruin the bearing.

If you have too much trouble removing the bearing you can always just give us a call or send an email and we can help you out!
