    Sometimes a helpful forum thread and fellow bike enthusiasts is far quicker than waiting to hear back from a warranty department.

    I was able to pry it out. I put a little pick under the edge of the engagement ring and pried it up a bit, then moved to the opposite side and did the same thing. slowly it wiggled out. I switched to a flathead screwdriver as soon as it was possible. It came out with relative ease. Pressing in the new one, I used a large socket and a small hammer.

    Hope this helps.

    But if it is broken like that, you can just take it out in pieces.
    Novatec has a specific tool that fits neatly into the serrated teeth. It can be used to install and remove the threaded engagement rings.

    What a pain to pry that thing out!
