They should come out easily by tapping from the other side with a flat headed screwdriver or something similar and a hammer. The spacer has a notch for that.

They don't need anything. Just tap them in by using the old bearings on top of new ones.

I had to replace all bearings on my Carbon Scout before even riding it...

Thanks

Main Pivot bearing Removal and Installation

Does anyone know what the best way is to remove the main frame chainstay pivot bearings on the Gen 1 (2017) carbon patrol? The bearings are pressed into the main frame from either side with some kind of spacer in the middle.

My Main Pivot Axle easily pushed right out.
The Rocker Pivot Axle is more difficult. This part has a notch in it which the line for the dropper post runs through. It may be necessary to pull out the seat post, and manipulate the hydraulic line while trying to turn the Rocker Pivot Axle. Once the axle is turned 180 degrees, and the dropper line is on the opposite side of the notch, it should pull out without much trouble. Have a look at the exploded view in the 2017 frame manual.

I'm half way through doing mine using a bearing press kit and custom made sleeves to press them into.this looks handy tho:

P.s you should never hit bearings back in referring to previous comments.
Always press them in

I've just taken out the two frame bearings which were surprisingly easy. I'd also taken the two linkage bearings out the other day and that was done with a drift and a lot of banging.

Decided to splash out on the RRP Bearing Press and Extraction tool. The 4 x 3802's might be even hard to get out.

I'm surprised all the bearings were seized but the bike appeared to be working fine!!

On a 2015 Patrol BTW
