Drop a ball bearing in there and get a matching screw that's more than long enough. Just screw it into the bushing until it starts to lift.

How to remove screws? Well... a long, long time ago, a brilliant man once invented a device to drive screws. Before that, screws just lay around, useless. He named his screw-driving device a screwdriver, after a popular drink. Thus, the world rejoiced, and we had a method of driving and removing screws.


Buy one of these "screwdrivers" at a hardware store. I hear they even have electrically powered ones.

Try to take a picture of the actual bushing... My solution works in 99.7% of all cases. Sometimes you just have to be very persistent. Also, you might wanna heat the bushing with a soldering iron for a while in case it's stuck to the finish.

his "screwing device", eh? technically its also an "unscrewer" in case you run into a problem, you can save yourself.

multifunction.

The bushings might not be so easy to get out. Why are you wanting to remove them?
#11
Ok.. what are you trying to remove? All I see are screws, and things attached by screws. Hence my suggestion of a screwdriver. I wasn't trying to be rude, I honestly thought you didn't know what to do... It happens sometimes.
