Help on removing driven flange bearing collar?

Ive searched high and low and all i could find information on removing the driven flange collar is to just remove it but tips.

Im trying to replace my bearings in the sprocket carrier and the rear wheel but unsure how to go about it before I start hammering them out with a drift.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

I'm no expert, but I have done this job on my bikes 2 or 3 times over the years.

Throw your new bearings in a ziplock, and then into the freezer the night before.

Get yourself a nice long drift to punch out the bearings (needs to be long so you can punch out from the opposite side of the bearing face)

Get yourself something that is the same width of the bearing so you don't damage them when knocking new ones in.

Punch our the bearings with the drift. Go get your new bearings from the freezer.

Apply a little waterproof grease, heat the hub with a heat gun so the differential of cold bearings and hot surface allow for an easy knock it.

Knock 'em in, don't hit the inner race. Hit square, and go carefully to make sure it stays nice and even on the way in.

Pack with grease, and install dust caps (if applicable). That's it!

Use a brass or soft hammer and be careful, make sure the bearings are fully seated.
