The push the bearing out with bits of pipe instructions are at

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.
