hey, I'm finally starting riding again now that i have people to ride with, but i have a problem. I got new cranks and i just needed a bottom bracket and i just got that after about 6 months. I went to install them about a hour ago, but i need to get the old bearing cups out and don't have a press.

Sooooo. My question is, anyone have a way to get them out with out usingthe press

And. If it matters, The bikes an 07 Fit AM.

And. I tried beating the heck out of it with a hammer trying to push them out.


Any help is greatly appreciated.

to get the old cups out just bash them out with a hammer and punch/screwdriver. if you don't need them again it doesn't matter it you stuff them.

Try to push them out straight as well - the cups and frame can damage each other if you force one side in or out much faster than the other, so apply bashing evenly around the circumference to avoid ovalising the circle
