    Pro2 I take it they just push out there are no lips seating them in place?

    If a recent one, then there’s a spacer that needs to be moved off centre so you can whack the outer bearing out. It all follows on from there.

    #Edit – yes that’s the same for a Pro II

    Strip the hub down and there is play in the freehub body bearings but how do you get them out? Hope vid skips around that bit!!

    Warm the lockring end up with a hot air gun, then place on bench, push the spacer that sits between the outer bearing and the 2 inner bearings to one side and drift out with a screwdriver. Turn hub over and use the axle to drift out the ones on the opposite side.

    Hammer. If it doesn’t work, try a bigger hammer. If that doesn’t work, try a less girly man.

    use a flat ended punch of appropriate size not a screw driver please.

    if they are corroded in place youll just ended up with a broken screw driver – unless they are strike through they are not designed to be hit.

    If your doing the freehub ones there used to be a circlip holding the bottom one in place so remember to remove that before you try to drift it out!
