How to remove the bearing seat from a Stream 3


New member
Hi guys,

I've given my stream 3 pumps a citric acid bath. When pulling them apart for a rinse I can't shake the little bearing seat out.

Are there tricks for removing it (no matter how hard I shake it won't dislodge)

When running the pump it working perfect in the citric acid however it seems to stop occasionally in the tank and makes a squealing sound "trying to start"

Any ideas?
