Take the shields off and soak it in vinegar for about an hour, then pick the remaining pieces out. Vinegar is acetic acid, which is used to clean up fresh silicone, It will also soften cured silicone and make it easier to remove. But it won't dissolve it like a solvent will do on some things.
I will try this. I really hope that it works. I was hoping that I could find something that would dissolve it. Maybe I'll look into some acids?
depends on how it got in there. Did it get in wet and cure inside the bearing? or did it brake off the response and get lodged in there? the second one can be fixed by picking it out and cleaning the bearing out, the other jhb got you handled on that.
It was cured in the response and broke off during play. Somehow, it got under the shields and under the bearing cage.
I'm personally not too sure but maybe try deshielding the bearing, picking out what you can with a safety pin, clean it, use hpa to attempt to dislodge any material and repeat until it works?
Or if you understand chemistry enough you could probably make some awesome experiment to get it out
probably not a great idea though if you really don't know what you are doing

I understand it enough to try and find an acid that could probably burn through it but will leave the steel unharmed, hopefully.
