I have removed and replaced many. Most consist of three parts--The cup, closest to armature windings the "C" clip and the flanged front washer. Just separate the two halves leaving the "C" on shaft. Just use whatever to remove.
Most important, is how it is replaced. Make sure the "C" is not distorted and gently close up the gap. Place on shaft and install using a soft piece of wood hit by a hammer. Then gently slide the ring in place and press the washers together.
