New bearing

I bought a new bearing as i wanted to change my old one.
I wanted to clean the bearing but i noticed that there was no C-clip.
I noticed that there was a small gap so i tried to use a needle to pry it out.
But instead i made a dent so i stopped. Shd i continue to pry it out?
And can i play with it deshielded or use my old bearings shield and c-clip to replace the
dented shield.

Sorry i dont really know how to explain :frowning:

Probably an EZO bearing, clean it with the shields on if this is the case.
