Its a little complicated to explain easily but basically you take the shield retaining rings off each side of the bearing and shake the shields off. Then get a pin and push out the metal ring that holds the balls equal distance apart. You must push it out from the side of the bearing that you can see the balls (one side you can see the balls the other you can see the metal retainer) It comes out easily.
When its out then push all the balls with a pin so that they are all side by side on one side of the bearing. The centre ring will now be able to be removed by pushing it out at the point opposite to where all the balls are and the balls will fall out.
Then simply clean all the bits as well as you can and when done reassemble in the reverse order and oil with a light oil.
I hope that was not too hard to understand.
