Reply to "Rolling Element Missing a Bearing"

Marco,

I do not see how the roller (assuming it is intact) can exit the bearing, since the inner ring/race has a lip to keep it in place axially. I can see how it can come out when outer ring/race is rotated/twisted (your 1st photo), since the cage that normally would retain it is deformed. If you zoom in on the photos, the other rollers have a very rough surface. Your story about the bearing is quite unusual!
