Hello Holly:

While I am not so sure about the lever really wearing out to the point where it needs to be replaced, just consider that a new cocking lever costs 9 EUR and this is good insurance just for the sake of not having to disassemble the gun one more time

For removing the bearing you will need a 2 mm key and most likely will have to warm up the area around it because Steyr uses hi strength glue.

Use this kind of glue when installing the new bearing.
