A friend of mine just bought one of these reels. The antireverse is busted. Well it works as a bearing, but rarely as an antireverse bearing.
Can this bearing be removed from the sideplate? Or is it incastrated/glued/stuck to the sideplate. I couldn't bulge it 0.0001mm no matter how hard i've tried. If i want to replace it?! Do i have to get an entirely new side plate with the bearing... Seems kinda' stupid to incastrate a bearing that the entire function of the reel depends on...
Thanx in advance.

All AR bearings I've dealt with are tightly pressed into the sideplate, but not so much they didn't come out when needed. Why not try taking it apart as sometimes they can slip due to improper lubricants being used in them? You should be able to do so without even removing it from the sideplate. This will allow you to inspect the rollers as well as the "fingers" in the plastic cage. Most times all is needed is a good cleaning and proper lubricant. Nothing too thin and slick as this will guarantee slipping.

I use a 50/50 mix of Hot Sauce oil and grease the the A/R Bearing, if U fish in cold weather just use 2-3 drops of oil.
