I bought a TP4050CM and asked for M3 holes. They sent me a motor with M4 holes and a separate motor cap with M3 holes. However the M3 cap doesn’t have a bearing and the one in the M4 cap seems pressed in. Any hope getting it out? Or just buy another bearing?

Take the rotor out of the housing and use the shaft of it (that would go into the bearing when closed up) and gently wiggle the bearing out of the cap 👍🏻

Hopefully that makes sense 🤦🏻‍♂️ Ha

I had no issues removing mine. I think I used one of the "wheel nut tools (1/10)" and just hammered it out 😅
When I was swapping my blx185’s bearing ... the shaft of the rotor was the ONLY thing I could used. Now I’m not one of those people who doesn’t have tool. I have WAY TO MANY... but I couldn’t get anything else to work.. after fighting with it for like 2 hours I was looking at the rotor and a light bulb struck. Stuck the end of the rotor in the bearing and wigged it back and forth for about 30 seconds and it was done 🤦🏻‍♂️😂
