    Hi fellas,

    There are a few 'nuances' to be aware of when doing this that could help ensure success:

    Sledgehammer and chisel. Stick corner of chisel in one of the splines and beat the **** out of it til it comes loose. Then use a giant pair of channel lock pliers to grip it and unthread it.

    i'd use a flat blade screwdriver instead of a chisel. it's less likely to gouge the bottom bracket cup.

    When I chip off one of the splines I just move to the next one...that's why they make them with a lot of splines right? When all the splines are gone it's time to replace the whole BB...isn't that how it goes?

    If you still have the crankarms installed, you may also need a crankpuller to remove them, like this:

    As for removing the bottom bracket, turn the left counter-clockwise (like all normal screws and nuts) to remove it. The right comes out in clockwise direction. Sometimes they can be really tight and you may need a breaker bar to drive your BB remover.
