get a bearing puller in there - the black part will hook under the inner chase and expand, then use the slider to reverse hammer it out.

You can also get ones that have an end piece with a lip on one side - you slide it in, hook it under and wedge it in place with a shim or flat head before using the hammer handle.

Heating the case helps a lot, too. It has to be done carefully, though, and the best way is to use an oven set at 250 degrees F. Heat the case for 10-15 minutes at that temperature, and the bearing will be much more cooperative.
