Bandsaw blade guide bearings

Hi guys I'm wanting to change the blade guide bearings on my bandsaw. There's no sign of any circlips , so I'm wondering if they're pressed on and if so what would be the best way to get them off ?
Thanks in advance

Sometimes the bearings are not pressed in with a great deal of pressure and you can put a socket on the opposite side and gently tap it out with a hammer. If they are really pressed in you would need to take them to a machine shop and have them change the bearings out with a hydraulic press. More important than removing the old bearings is installing the new ones without damaging them.

Model number and brand?

I've not seen pressed on bearings, but they may be used.... I donno? Which model and make of saw is it? Can you go to the operators/parts manual and see how they are assembled? Some manuals are available online.
Post a photo.
Not enough info to give any advice on.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

If it is pressed on get a bearing breaker and use a gear puller.

looks like a circ clip

It's a poor quality photo, but it looks like a circ clip that's on the end of the shaft ....? Just pop it off.

As it turns out it was a press fit. Presumably the bearing was heated and pressed onto the cold shaft. I had to destroy it to get it off but a new one will arrive tomorrow.
