Hi All,
I am in the process of reconditioning my large filler capped brake master cylinder.
I have removed the first circlip but the nylon bearing ( item 25 ) is stuck .
I can rotate the bearing with a crude tool but not withdraw it.
Has anyone found a way to overcome my problem ?

gently tapping it on a bench usually gets it out (from memory the nylon bearing is just in there under friction and the brake fluid kind of "seals it in" like a vacuum)

Gentle might not quite get you there but the method is sound.
