One of the bearing in the pivot on my giant atx is well and truly stuck. Been hamering the crap out of it and it hasnt bunged an inch.
Any ideas as to getting it out, got replacements so can be damaged(well it already is :lol: )

Plus Gas works most times. Can be bought from car spares shops.
Failing that gently heat the area with a heat gun, trying not to heat the bearing it self. This should expand the seat bearing sits in, loosening the fit.
