    Newer Main Pivot greasing-blown seal?

    I went to inject grease into the main pivot tonight on my 2012 ElCiclon. It was awfully hard getting grease in there and then it started to flow. But not where it should have.

    Looks like a sealer o-ring bulged out. As you can see from the pic, I got the geese fitting out, but I'm not real sure how the rest if it comes apart. I've removed the snap ring from the drive side, but that is about it. Worried about applying pressure in the wrong spot and destroying a race.

    Any tips on how to get that seal back in its proper place?
