They are locked up, they need replaced. Once bearings go bad they can't be fixed.

Is it stuck or stiff. It stiff put it in a bottle filled with nitro cleaner and shake the living hell out of the bearing. Than put bearing oil in it.

try feeding some oil into where the shaft and bearing meet to try and lubricate the parts to get them apart.

Or clamp the bearing in a vice and gently hammer the shaft out.

put an ice on the shaft near the berring but not the berring to freeze and contract the shaft,
then at the same time hold the berring with your fingers and pull on the berring, your finger heat should warm and expand the berring....

and using science.....u can solve your problem........now who says its a waste of time learning science in school....
