Its easy just push the inside tube to one side, grab a long pin punch and give it a couple of good taps then do the same on the opposite side until it drops out.

Take the tube out and its easier to do the other side.

To put the new one's in just lightly tap them until they are flush with the hub then use a socket to bedded then down properly and dont forget to put the tube back in.. Simple

You can also put the new ones in the freezer for an hour or so, can make installation a little easier.

Put the wheel in the oven too, they'll fall straight in.

Only tap on the outer ring, do not bang on the inner ring as you may damage the bearing causing premature failure.
