Mercury bearing sheilds...

I have a cuLater with a Merc D bearing. THe bearing got some silicone Jammed in it and I want to take off the sheilds to clean, lube, and blow it out. There seems to be no C-clip on the bearing, and yoyoguy states that it has “Floating Sheilds”
How can I take off the sheilds?

Removing the shields on a bearing with no c-clips.


use neddle to get off thee shiels
