Rear wheel bearing removal issues.........help
Have any of you guys/gals delt with removing the wheel bearings from a PVM wheel before? I've got the captive spacers out, but not sure how to go about getting the bearings out.
Usually a can take a screw driver and knock out the opposite side bearing without hurting anything. But on these wheels the inner spacer doesn't want to budge. I can't catch a lip on the bearing unless i can get the inner spacer to shift enough to the side to be able to get the flat head on the bearing. Figured i'd come here and ask around before a destroy a perfectly good set of bearings for no reason.
Was going to try and just beat one bearing towards the center of the hub to see if i could get the opposite bearing to break free enough to make some space for the inner spacer to be able to be moved around. But on most wheels they have a lip on the underside of the bearing seat that keeps them from going past a certain point inwards.
What say you all?
