How-To: Remove Blind Bearings

Share This Post

Some bearings can be really difficult to remove, especially those that are in a “blind” hole. Also, wheel bearings can be challenging since there is no ledge or lip to catch with a drift punch.

The blind bearing puller used in this video is a life saver. I should have bought it years ago! Now, there are several on the market, however I feel this Tusk brand comes with the most collets, which covers a wide range of bearing sizes.

Before you go buy the blind bearing puller, try some heat to release the bearing. I’ve been using this method and can get 95% of the bearings out. Video below shows you how to do it properly.
