Bearing replacement guide?

Hello. Is there any guide to removing the bearings? I need to lube mine as they have become very noise and are seizing. I got the Z axis ones easily but I'm trying to figure out if there's some way to get the bearings out of the head unit without taking half of it apart.

RE: Bearing replacement guide?

I did a little maintenance last week:


Remove z-axis holder at the top

remove x-axis motor

release (dont remove, just release) screws from z-axis motor

slowly turn both z-axis rods so entire x-axis moves upwards, gently pull z-axis to the front so the wiring from the extruder doesnt catch at the frame

carefully remove entire x-axis assembly

once its off the z-axis, remove rear cover of extruder, cut zip ties from extruder bearings and extruder should come off 

Hope this helps.
