Removing the bearing retainer from a 650l wheel

How the hell are you supposed to get that thing out? I bought that overpriced motion pro tool, tried heating it and soaking it, and it still will not move a millimeter. Do I have to use an impact driver, or do I have to drill the peening out? Can I reuse the retainer once it is out? Can I just loctite it back in later, or should I re-peen it?

I have the OEM tool and after soaking in corossion-X, mine just screwed right out - with a big lever.  I reused the retainer after putting in new bearings.


Good luck!

Drill out the peening and peen it again after you put it back together. You can use the retainer again.
