It's pretty easy. Get a hammer and a scrap piece of 2x4. Place the block of wood on the side of bearing buddy and hit with the hammer. Then rotate the hub 90 or 180 degrees and repeat. Basically you want to wiggle it out of the hub a little at a time. It's pressed in.

Okay, Thanks! I wasnt sure hoe the bearing was placed in there. Now to reinstall, i don't own a press so do i have to bring it to a shop? Or could i just repeat the process by putting the 2x4 on the outside and lightly tapping it in place?

Sorry for the delayed response - I forgot to keep an eye on this one. If you haven't fixed it already, you're correct - you can use a block of wood and a hammer to drive the new bearing buddy/ protector back on. Just make sure to drive it in straight.
