      • To remove Bearing Buddy , lay a block of wood against the side of it and strike the wood with a hammer. Place the wood on the opposite side and hit again.
      • Continue this procedure until you ”walk” the Bearing Buddy out of the hub. Don’t disassemble the Bearing Buddy to attempt to remove it.
