Auto Mechanic Hack of the Week | Pilot Bearing Removal

In this episode of Auto Mechanic Hack of the Week, we are collaborating with Samy Bee and her boyfriend Tyler to show you a clever trick to easily remove a pilot bearing when replacing a clutch.

I have seen so many different methods to do this. From using grease to pack the bearing to using a good ol’ pry bar to pry that pilot bearing out; everybody got his own take on it. But this paper tissue trick was a first for me. 

And it works pretty well!

I always like to see people coming up with clever ideas to solve whatever problem they have. And, if it’s working, why not?

Anyway, check out this week’s auto mechanic hack and let us know what’s your pilot bearing removal techniques and what works best for you in the comment section below.
