I have removed i cant tell you how many of these, and while there is a proper tool for it, i have found this to work exceptionally well everytime. 

Go grab 4 or 5 slices of break. And start cramming them into the center of the bearing. As it fills up, take your socket, or half inch extension (whatever fits best into the pilot bearing hole snug) and start hitting it with a hammer. You will need to continue adding bread but eventually you will get to the point there is no more to be added and as you push the bread in it will start forcing the bearing out. 


You can use other things such as grease etc but bread is in your house and cheap. Not to mention hilarious.

I think I prefer bar soap for this purpose myself.
