Top secret .
The way I do it is, chisel the plastic inner liner all the way through, it will then fold up and pull out. This gives you the full inner race edge to hit on.
I then put an old bearing tube through the middle till it touches the race, then clamp it with a set of long nosed mole grips. ( this stops it slipping off when you hit it).
Drape a rag over the end that it is coming out of, coz it often smashes, and hit the tube hard, it will drive the race out in about 3 hits.
Once you have knocked both races out, put one new one in, then fit a new plastic sleeve before fitting the second bearing.
Whole job = 30 mins per side once you have done a few
