Hey guys as I was oiling the two bearings in the brush roll, one of them had separated into three pieces, the inner race the outer race and the little ballbearings does anybody know of how to remove a stuck how to race on a bearing? And what type of bearings should I use?

I just need to source some bearings, preferably a closest original style instead of something from a bearing shop I have seen them on This Vacuum site, they look to be pretty decent quality, but I think this website is probably broken because when I try and get a closer look at me brush strips or search for anything it comes up with a server error

Not sure if this will work in a brushroll that predates the Convertible/Senior machines since I've never tried it. The old bearings used a felt washer along with a retaining clip. If you have any spare brushrolls with the revised bearing, you can test fit it before ordering the part.
