Hey, my SRAM guide rsc brake bearing grenaded. So I went ahead on buying a pair of replacement bearings... Ive never worked on brakes before, and I noticed the bearings don't seem to just "plop" in... Is there any assembly / bearing installation video? I couldn't find any.

Since I searched this and also never found an answer..

They're pressed in. I popped the old one out with a bench vice and a 6mm socket. I'm sure an SAE equivalent would work, too.

This isn't my photo, but similar concept. I tried a c-clamp first but the ball-and-socket joint was too loose and the socket wouldn't stay on the bearing. Unlike the photo, make sure the socket is centered on the outer race and not going to press on the lever housing, too.

Bonus points if you can find something to fit in the gap where the lever goes so you don't bend the housing. I didn't but seemed to be alright.
