How do I get the old bearings out of my existing wheels? Last Updated: 08/19/2011
You will need a Reflex Tool. You can use this tool to remove wheels from you skates and use it to remove bearings from the wheels. Use it for quick extraction of the axle bolt once it's loose.. It is round and has a diameter equal to the inside diameter of the bearing face followed by a slightly larger diameter. When you push this part of the tool against one of the bearing spacers that's in between the bearings on the wheel, the bearing and bearing spacer will pop out the opposite side. Turn the wheel around and push the opposite side bearing from the inside.
