Ours was removed by cutting two small notches in the tiny part of the bearing that was sticking out with a hack saw. A bearing puller was used to grip the notches and the cutlass bearing was pulled out. The mechanics cut a groove in the replacement bearing on a lathe before reinstalling it to make it easier to do next time.
