He means that the question has been asked and answered several times and that a search would have provided you with an answer. As for taking the shields off, take a safety pin and run it along the outer lip of the bearing until it catches. That would be the c clip. Once you find it, carefully pry it off. I usually just take off one shield and leave it off as it makes cleaning and lubing easier. I use zippo lighter fluid to clean my bearings just because I have it around but you can use any lighter fluid or mineral spirits. Make sure to lube the bearing after cleaning. This ensures the bearing will last longer. Put a drop of lube on that safety pin and run it along the little metal balls
