Hey guys I can't get the bb out of my snapped fit frame. I tried sticking a screwdriver in from the other side and hammering it out but I stopped because I didn't want to damage the bearing. I've cleaned he bearings and everything but I just don't know how to get it out without damaging the bearings.

spray some wd 40 on the inside part of the bb(not in the bearing around it) put a socket extension angle inside your bb and wack it with a hammer evenly going around the circumference of the bearing. if it doesnt come out, you MIGHT have to spend 6 dollars on new bearings. which is ALOT of money.

But the spacer on the inside is in the way.
