    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!

    Same thing happened to me! I notice the plastic that holds the ring is deformed like mine was. I am also on the larger side and climb a lot of hills. I think that is what deformed my hub's ratchet ring. I decided to go with a Hope Pro 4 Fatsno hub. It has been working great!

    Bought a set of Novatec 791/792 for $88us shipped. Built a budget wheelset for a computer bike. They work fine and parts are available. Built another wheelset for proper mountain biking with Shimano Zee/SLX hubs for about the same price. Why bother with Novatec when you can get Shimano for the same price? If Shimano is not your thing, Hope hubs are just not that expensive. Built several sets with Pro2 and Pro4; spending more is just wankery.
