Step 1: Remove the main shaft cap screw and dented drag knob to open the reel. Then Remove the spool from the frame.

Step 2: With the spool removed from the frame, remove the dust and waterproof cap on the front of the spool and remove the draw bar, spring and washer. The first bearing is pressed into the spool from the front. To remove, use a wooden dowel about the inside bearing diameter of the bearing and tap into the center of the bearing, until it becomes stuck.

The more you use the bearing the more broken in it becomes until eventually it is so broken in that it is time to replace it.
